I think that all dinosaurs are equally cool.

Agreed. They all had unique characteristics that made them equally intriguing.

What? Those bipedal dragons were our mortal enemies for eons! We still have racial memories of their bloodthirsty butchery. Who's side are you on??

Sorry, I just watched an interesting show about how close our line came to extinction, twice before we came ashore.
The arthropods easily exceeded us in the arm's race when we were mere pre-chordates (630 mya). We might have been rescued by a Snowball Earth event.
Then 150 million years later, mollusks were the dominant group and they almost did us in (with their effective beaks).

Um, you're in the wrong time period. Molluscs would have beaten us how? They weren't rat-eaters, last time I checked.

I checked. Our ancestors and the ancestors of rats weren't the same individuals 150 million years after 630 million years ago.

See Christopher, this is where I need the name of the species we were 630-150= 480 million years ago. I think it was a lungfish relative??

Oh, I thought you said our ancestors 150 million years ago. You're right, then.

Fish had barely just evolved 480 million years ago. Lungfish and then Amphibians evolved between 416 and 359 mya.

I think we were some sort of jawless fish that wasn't armoured except on its head.

Are you refering to the ostracoderms?

They're right. I'm confused, I've compacted this huge amount of 'fish' time badly in my mind. I want to give this lecture to some neophytes this November. Yikes!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_huma...

According to the wiki timeline of human evolution;
480 Mya we had jaws! Hooray!
The Placodermi were prehistoric fishes. Placoderms were the first of the jawed fishes, their jaws evolving from the first of their gill arches [5]. Their head and thorax were covered by articulated armoured plates and the rest of the body was scaled or naked.

Yes, I am. It's the fish on walking with monsters.
