They have used the okapi pattern for a bunch of iguanodonts (I
thought they were hadrosaurs, but come to think of it they might be
_Iguanodons_) that walk along a beach. I saw the colour pattern and
immediately thought *okapia*. A nice idea, looks good.
Incidentally, we have three of the models used in the series down
stairs as I speak (the _Tropeognathus_, a temnospondyl head and an
ophthalmosaur. I helped carry the ophthalmosaur into the department
and did in some of my back musculature in the process).
_Tropeognathus_ may well be present in the UK Cambridge Greensand: a
lot of the so-called _Ornithocheirus_ stuff is indistinguishable
from S. American material and specimens from both sides of the
Atlantic have been referred to _Coloborhynchus_ (which might be a
senior synonym of _Tropeognathus_).
