FLYING RAPTOR NAMED
Finally, the 'Madagascar flying raptor' has been given a name. It will never
be mistaken for _Vorona_ again. Cathy Forster will be naming it _Rahona
ostromi_ in friday's ish of Science. The name means "Ostrom's menace from the
clouds" in whatever language is native to northwestern Madagascar. I suppose
we will be also getting a cladogram and a nice reconstruction of the bones.
I also have in an email, the full text of an AP article. I have forgoten if
it is against the rules to forward that to the list, and will refrain from
doing so until I get a go/no go from (the) Mickey.
