To find out about this, you should contact Bob Bakker.  It is his new name
for an allosaurid (but I have no idea where it would be from ;-)).  There is
a picture on the Tate (sp?) Museum's website of its arm (I don't remember
the URL).  The site was so slow when I looked, that I think I saw the arm
(looks like an Allosaurus arm, but who am I to argue) and then got angry and
left.  SOMEBODY must have the URL.  The last I heard about it, it was
possibly Allosaurus.  I have seen Dr. Holtz post here, there, and everywhere
about it, so maybe he would be a good person to ask for more information.

Is it just me, or has the name "raptor" gotten more than its fair share of
use recently?
