Re: Sharovipteryx landing strategy

This seems just one more reason why Sharovipteryx must have had a forearm
membrane to compensate for drag in it`s rear section. How could it swing
it`s feet foreward to land? <<
You're probably right.  I was thinking that Sharovipteryx might have been able
to turn its feet downward like the flaps of an airplane, but I don't know if
its ankle joints could accomplish such a feet (so to speak).
