Subject: SICKLE CLAWED PROTOBIRD=7F=7F?
I am hearing tales of a new dino-bird that has a sickle claw, and is more
primitive than Archaeopteryx, from Madagascar. Anyone know anything certain
about this. Is it real, or is it rumor.
Not that such a creature would be so surprising. Gauthier (1986) and myself
(1988 PDW) noted that Archaeopteryx has an incipient two toed foot and hyper
extendable second toe. The dromaeosaur-Archaeopterx link is looking better
all the time.
