A type of Allosaur known as Wyoming Raptor?
A type of Dromaeosaurid known as Wyoming Raptor?
Or a plain old Allosaur they called 'Wyoming Raptor' just for fun?
basicly, WHAT IS WYOMING RAPTOR?>
Well, Bakker's used the name "Wyomingraptor" for a specimen of an
allosaur that he calls a distinct genus. The specimen hasn't been
described yet, so no one really knows. Did you see an upright arm of
an allosaur there? That would be a cast of that specimen, or part of it.
It may be *Allosaurus*, or whatever. I think Bob likes the name
-raptor, which is all and well.
[At least, I think it's at the Tate . . . may be wrong.]
