PTEROSAUR REF



Just got hold of a real neat paper on pterosaur ichnites from the Tithonian of
Quercy. The prints show that the animals were quadrupedal, the prints are like
those of _Pteraichnus_, and '..the atypical gleno-acetabular ratio measured on
the trackways leads to the notion that these pterosaurs inclined their fore-
limbs forward while walking.'.

"Is that fair?"  "Multicoloured _Peponocephala_? I'll give you 'fair'...."
