    Neat!

    Minor notes:

    1) He uses the latest stratigraphic findings in putting the end of the Cretaceous at 66mya, rather than the more-typically-cited 65mya from older charts. (What’s a million years here or there?)

    2) The art from 2016 labels the post-Cretaceous as “T” for Triassic, the old nomenclature; the art from 2017 uses the most recent nomenclature (Pg/Paleogene).

    I approve of attention to detail.

    Blarg! The bottommost/earlier “T” stands for “Triassic”; the upper/later “T” stands for Tertiary, which is the old nomenclature. Triassic is still the standard usage for that period (and is abbreviated “Tr” to avoid ambiguity).

    /embarrassed.
