A dromaeosaur wrist couldn't rotate, OK. But is
this movement allowed by the carpal of segnosaurs?
Thanks in advance - Luc J. "Aspidel"
Constraints on the wrists of therizinosauroids would have been largely
similar to those in dromaeosaurs.
Incidentally, anyone interested in semilunate carpals really ought to get
your copy of the Ostrom Symposium. Dan Chure has a whole heck of a lot to
say about them.
