Re: Palms in



Hi, all!
     One of the speakers (I don't remember at the moment who) at the Graves
symposium mentioned this in relation to dromaeosaurids and proto-birds. His
statements indicated that dromie claws actually pointed _downward_ at rest,
then gradually turned inward with extention of the arms. Thus, the
"predatory strike" of *Velociraptor*, et.al. had the claws of the hand
ripping upward through the victim as the "killer claw" of the foot slashed
downward. Any thoughts?
            B.
