I found a couple of pictures by Greg Paul in a book that I have. It is
titled "Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs" and it was published by Beekman House
in 1990. (ISBN 0-517-03308-9) Beautifully illustrated and well written,
it's one of my favorite books on dinosaurs. One of the pictures is a
Jurassic scene that includes an allosaurus reclining in the foreground.
I think it looks very realistic. The other picture is of a pair of
feathered deinonychus'. One is scratching its neck with its sickle claw.
I love it!
