Still more claws

It must be a slow day on the net. I was finally able to get to the feature on
cats at the National Geographic website, http://www.nationalgeographic.com/
Hit search more features, then 1997 features, then search for cats. It's
loaded with superb drawings and paintings by Mauricio Anton.
I was delighted to find an animated(!) diagram by Anton of just exactly how
the retractable claw of a cat works. Those of you interested in the recent
discussions about dromaeosaur claws might want to check this out. Lots of
great sabertooth drawings and paintings as well.
Enjoy, Dan Varner.
