What would the museums do without those fossils, Bob? They're the only proof we have that some species existed. Excellent entry for the dinosaur contest and I wish you success! Love, Carolyn

Nobody living today was an eyewitness to that event which was an estimated 65 million years ago. However, your haiku describes a plausible hypothesis to the fate of those large reptiles.

Very realistic and practical picture you have worded, sums up all, what I said in nine haiku, Bob. Appreciate your approach, Bob
