Re: Sue Photos Online (Good ones!)

The biggest problem, I think, with mounting original bones instead of "corrected" casts and public perception of the same, is that for the most part, the general public doesn't know or care about why the bones are distorted. Tell them why, and they basically will shrug and say, "oh", but they still want to see something closer to what the animal's skeleton looked like shortly after death. That's kind of why people tend to oooh and aaah when viewing the newer T.rex mount at CMNH; it's easier for them to imagine the living animal.
