In all seriousness, if this kid keeps it up, he's going to go places. He's on the right track, and at his rate, he'll have his Ph. D. before I do! Riley provides the perfect example of kids doing what kids do best: retaining information about the world around them as they explore it. In this particular case, the information is about dinosaurs, and while he might need to polish up some of the finer points, he's already starting to throw his weight around and question the established view of things. Why do paleontologists generally say theropods only have three toes on their feet, when they very clearly have four? Only a child would ask a question this obvious - one I admit I've never even thought of. If you tell me a synapomorphy of Theropoda is a three-toed foot, I'm going to accept it. But he's absolutely right in pointing out that, although the pes is functionally tridactyl, digit I, also known as the hallux, is still present in "three-toed" dinosaurs. What a brilliant kid.
Best of luck to Riley as he continues on his journey, and happy Friday everyone!
