Ah, a good murder mystery (or is it a murder)...
Are you suggesting natural causes? I can see it now, the Velociraptor,
upset by the death and scavenging of his pet Protoceratops, grief stricken,
has a heart attack and dies trying to get it to play just one more time......
Seriously, though, I am always fascinated when a skeleton is so complete
and well preserved, in articulation, but is missing a leg or arm or
something. Even more bizarre to me is when they are missing a section of
tail vertebrae or back vertebrae. Other than erosion and scavenging, what
causes this to happen?
