A picture comes to mind: An ambush is set for the tyrannosaur coming down the
street. The tyrant trips over the wire, coming crashing to the ground. Out of
the alley way come three fanatical theropod workers, armed to the teeth with
tape measures and big calipers. Jim Farlow takes the feet measurements,
Greg Paul gets the hips and upper leg, and I'll work on the metatarsi,
