Pangolin trying to be Godzilla. By Christian Box.

The concept of theropod-like mammals is a fairly controversial one in speculative evolution discourse and one I weighted in very negatively in the past. Some years of retrospect and nature humbling me and I’ve arrived at a more neutral position: they are possible, but only under specific circumstances.

William Beebe’s notorious hypothetical Tetrapteryx. One of the most famously vindicated hypotheses of all time.

After discussing pterosaur hindwings I feel its only fair to talk about the hindwings that we know actually existed.
