Re: Rahonavis

  Luc Bailly asked about a *Rahonavis* skeleton available.

  The PDF file is freely available from _Science_ (http://www.sciencemag.org) 
right now -- in
fact, anything less recent than one year is -- as long as you have a free 
subscription (doesn't
take too long to do), and simply search for "Rahona" and "Forster." If that 
avenue does not pan
out, for any reason, several list members, including yours truly, have the 
paper available as a
pdf to send online. It doesn't hurt to check the local science library, too, 
and any university
worth it's salt should have this journal. If you want the paper for the 
reference, make sure you
get the correction that changes the preoccupied *Rahona* for the dinosaur to 
*Rahonavis* later
that year (1998).

  You can use the same resource to now get the Sereno et al. papers describing 
*Nigersaurus,* *Suchomimus,* *Deltadromeus* and the new *Carcharodontosaurus* 
skull, his big
"evolution of dinosaurs" article, the Sampson et al. *Majungatholus* paper, 
etc. These papers
should give you fertile artistic sources. Unfortunately, the *Afrovenator* 
paper is no longer
available online, though someone may have it (I know I've been looking for it, 
though I have the
hardcopy version).

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
