Re: [Re: Succhomimus (again)]
<Whoa, whoa, hold on there, no dissing us theropods! "Caudi" and
"Protarch" are perfectly fine names, as is "fowl immitator"
(ornithomimosaurs have been consistently named, with three exceptions,
after birds, then the ever-functional suffix); the name was not
intended to mock your Friday-night supper! Some names are honorific,
like "Gaso", and some are so strange and long, they've got to be
wonderful, my personal favorite theropod *Eustreptospondylus* no mean
My personal favorite is Micropachycephalosaurus!
