Just out of curiosity I searched to find any fossils found in the Tertiary, and I found this possible find:

http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/impact2000/pdf/3139.pdf

However, this cannot even remotely be used as any evidence of creationism since the K-T boundary is not some natural law that forbids the survival of some dinosaurs into the Tertiary, rather it is a result of good science in finding the K-T boundary (containing higher amounts of iridium, thus indicating some extraterrestial impact), and determining the complete absence or extreme lack of certain lifeforms after K-T. By finding and dating the impact crater in the Yucatan (i.e., the 180km/dia Chicxulub crater), we have a plausible explanation for the K-T boundary.

In all, I don't see that any exceptions to the K-T extinction to be of any merit against the view that the K-T findings are science at its best.

Warm regards, Harv
