SYNDACTYLY

    I've never seen a conjoined second and third digit in any tracks around
here, but try to be alert for evidence of it.  I'd be a lot less surprised
to find it in a marsupial track, than either the manus or the pes imprint of
a dinosaur.  In the former I might consider it normal and important evidence
of a specific type of marsupial, but in the latter, I might suspicion a
congenital deformity.

syndactyly - I was wondering if Ray or other "trackies" had seen any
