comment Why are fly not scared when landing on a monitor with changing graphics?
That's what I can't figure out. The OP describes things moving on the screen, which should activate the flicker effect.

comment Why are fly not scared when landing on a monitor with changing graphics?
I can't reconcile your answer with the well-studied optomotor response of fruit flies (e.g., ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2846117), where in flies are tethered in place and their visual field is changed via LED screens, simulating movement. Photo here: depts.washington.edu/flyarama

comment Largest direct ancestor of humans
Except among the very recent ancestors of modern humans (and there is debate even there), generally we do not consider fossil species as direct ancestors. All fossil species are endpoints, tips of the phylogenetic tree.

comment What species of Cerapoda lived during the Jurassic?
I'm a little confused by your question. You ask specifically about Cerapoda, but your list includes several non-cerapod genera (Heterodontosaurus and Agilisaurus). Do you want only Cerapoda, or Ornithischia more broadly?

comment Safety of using industrial water for hand washing
You should ask this question of your university's Environmental Health and Safety department (or the equivalent). They will know the answer and are the only ones qualified to answer in your specific case.
