Brooding Specimens (was Re: Brooding over dinos)



  It may be of interest to those interested in this particular thread:
the orientation of the arms relative to the spine seen in the two
*Oviraptor* specimens is also seen in *Pelecanimimus* from Las Hoyas,
stratigraphically older than the Djadokhta and Bayan Mandahu
(Perez-Moreno, et al. 1993; Barsbold, 1997 in Padian and Currie).

  That I know of, this bumps the total taxa who are in the brooding
position to two, and the total specimens to three. Of course, the
pelican-mimic could be doing something else, or enjoying his inherited
condition of having a patagium.
