Re: Rahonavis; sickle claws

There is an excellent skeletal drawing in the paper in which Rahona (now Rahonavis) was originally described and named in Science magazine. It is available online if you register with Science (and I'm pretty sure registration is still free).

Hi dino-listers,

I'd like to draw _Rahonavis_. Does someone have a skeletal restoration? I fond nothing (but fine artwork) on the www.
Thanks in advance.

BTW: how many times did the sickle claws appear in dinosaur evolution? Twice (once in maniraptorans, once in ceratosaurs: _Noasaurus_)? May we say it's convergent evolution?
