Message from Thomas Hammann (Germany)
I don't want to confuse you, but I just found another source which could make
the "Deinocheirus-Question" even more complicated.
In a German nature-magazine from July 1993 is a report of a German/Mongolian
expedition to the Gobi desert with the headline "The cemetery of the dragons"
(GEO, No.7/July, 1993, p. 34-58). In one passage the author Uwe George wrote:
"(...) The creature was named _Deinocheirus_ , which means 'terrible hand'.
Maybe the 50 cm(!) long sabre-like foot-claw with it's two 'blood-grooves'
was found at the place of our camp belonged to this animal."
I think that I've never heard of this mysterious "foot-claw" again. The article
also doesn't explain where and when this claw was exactly found. Maybe there's
someone who knows more about that?
