Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: While there are a few liberties regarding the portrayal of the three bird species which Skinner claims, were driven to extinction by the lizards, their illustrations are otherwise rather accurate to the real animals, and even have the correct binomial names in a nice aversion of CanisLatinicus:
** Dodo (''Raphus cucullatus'')
** Black-billed cuckoo (''Coccyzus erythropthalmus'')
** Nene (''Branta sandvicensis'')
