JW: Kangaroos are bipedal. Was this caused by a testosterone
increase? Is there any correlation with their pubertal growth
spurt (if they have such a thing)?

Having read your articles on the newsgroup, and your website

Am I right in thinking that DHEA is only used for gene
transcription and replication after the formation of the zygote?
