Today is my "ask at Paleonet day" :-)

  Another question:

The classical term of the "Big Five" mass extinctions of Raup and  
Sepkoski (1982) obviously refers to the Big Five of the African  
Safaris / hunters.

Is there anywhere an explicit comment, remark, notice etc. on the  
origin of this term?

thank you

Björn
