Re: Live From Dinosaur Island

In that case, what purpose do the coroid foramen serve? Were either _Bambiraptor_ or _Eotyrannus_ at a loss for not having them?
My curiosity has been sparked....

That's right.  The authors state-
"Peculiarly, there is no sign of a coracoid foramen. Absence of a coracoid
foramen has also been reported for the dromaeosaurid Bambiraptor feinbergi
(Burnham et al., 2000)."
