Norell on Protoceratops proportions

Mark Norell asked me to forward this information with regards to the
proportions of _Protoceratops_ reconstructions associated with the Fighting
Dinosaurs exhibit:

Some discussion has appeared about the lengths of Protoceratops fore limbs
in our reconstruction for the fighting dinosaurs.  These limb proportions
are based on AMNH 6417 and 6467- both complete articulated skeletons
collected at Bayn Dzak. Our reconstruction was sculpted on an armature that
reflect these proportions.
