"...rodents, reptiles and small mammals..."

MSM science reporting is so ignorant it's funny sometimes. Like this: What's wrong with this picture?

The big bird, which stood about 10 feet tall and probably weighed 400 pounds, was fleet of foot and able to chase down and devour rodents, reptiles and small mammals 15 million years ago on the plains of Patagonia. Not for nothing are its closely related species, a group known as phorusrhacids, more commonly called the “terror birds.”


This, instead of "lizards, rodents, and small reptiles."
