but continents were little otherwise arranged...

I'm not sure but is it mean then was warmer in New Zealand?
I think so, but not sure. Artist recreations of that era show tons of jungle-like flora, that would indicate a warm climate.

Re: New Parrot Fossil Found

Considering these days YouTubers are doing things like trying to keep cougars in their apartment kitchens as “kitty pets”, I am terrified to think what it would be like if these guys still existed! Oh please, who am I fooling? My dream bird is a Greater Vasa, and those things are practically dinosaurs!!! Seriously, though, this is so cool!
