Thecodonts spawned the crocodilians, the pterosaurs (flying reptiles) and the dinosaurs that were to dominate the greater part of the Mesozoic era. For whatever reason, mammals survived this extinction, and thereafter, filled many of the eco-niches left by the dinosaurs and other extinct species.

Evidence for impacts, smaller than the one 65 My ago, has been found at some of the breaks, but not at others. Furthermore, “No dinosaur...ever breathed fire or smoke or had bones of iron and brass” (p. 48).
