Regarding the size of the _Unquillosaurus_ pubis, George says..
> It's about the same size as _Unenlagia_.
Well, if the pubes of these animals are in similar proportion to body size,
presumably _Unquillosaurus_ would be about _Unenlagia_ size: Puerta and Novas
gave this as 2-3 m or thereabouts. I haven't yet got around to checking _The
Dinosauria_ again, but I did glance at David Lambert's _Collins Guide to
Dinosaurs_: he gives _Unquillosaurus_ total length as 11 m! Hardly comparable
to _Unenlagia_. If George is right about the pubis size, and he probably is,
David's total length estimate is probably way off. We should be visualising
_Unquillosaurus_ as a _Deinonychus_-sized beast instead right?

For the race, my money's on Jim Farlow: I've seen him racing emus, and he did
a good job;-)
