Re: Acrocanthosaurus trackways, one last thing...
One last thing concerning the _Acrocanthosaurus_ trackways :
While there was mention of the three fastest animals of the lot, I don't
the biggest of those three ; One is said to have a footprint lenght of 29 cm
stride lenght of 566 cm ; Estimated moving 12.1 m/sec-1 (43.5 km/h). There is no
mention of the second one (Estimated 8 m/sec-1 / 29 km/h), but what about the
third one ? I know the footprint lenght is 38 cm, and is estimated at moving 12
but what's the stride lenght of this specimen ? (By stride ; One stride
includes two steps..)
J.Farlow mentionned that it could have been a subadult specimen of _A.
how can we scale from that ? I've heard you could estimate the hip height and
of the trackmaker ; if true, does anyone have the stride lenght & estimated hip
of the specimen ?
At last, I'm not sure I understand for the "footprint", he may have taken some
the footprint including whole phalanges & metatarsal/phalange joint, or is it
simply only a
part of the phalanges being held on the ground while running ?
