Greatly appreciate this AMA! What are your thoughts on the possibility of viviparity (live-birth) within Thalattosuchia (marine crocodiles)? I read Herrera et al 2017 which draws the conclusion that viviparity is the more likely strategy (for the Metriorhynchidae family), but wouldn't oviparity (egg laying) would be the assumed strategy since viviparity isnt found in archosauria (crocs and dinosaurs)?
