Speaking of the Lizard of Oz, with whose name Dan has no problem,
could someone please clarify whether Ozraptor was six feet tall or six
feet long?  It wasn't clear from the article I read a few weeks back.

A brief description would also be welcome.  Or point me to where in
the archives if I missed it!
