Re: New ankylosaur and nodosaur announced
In a message dated 99-04-28 11:19:50 EDT, you write:
Am I the only one, or does that ankylosaur drawing have a bit of a beer gut?
:) Was that intended from rib cage estimations? Oooo I hate waiting for
(Not meaning to offend the artist, ankylosaurs seem like they are a bugger
to draw. A cross between a coffee table and a tank!) >>
If you would like to see a really splendid ankylosaur restoration, see the
Greg Paul interview in the latest _Prehistoric Times_ magazine. I don't want
to seem to be a shill for that publication, mind you, but on page 10 of PT
No.35 is a wonderful restoration by Greg of a beer-gutted Euoplocephalus.
Also, it's important to remember that the armor was covered by "hide". See
Colbert's _Dinosaurs Their Discovery and their World_1961, plate 75. This is
Sauropelta. Note the patch of skin impression above the left shoulder.
Also, I would like to know if anyone can document the first time a
restoration or reconstruction was made of a nodosaur without a tail-club. Dan
