Re: Acrocanthosaurus atokensis locomotion

From: dexter dexter <dexter1647@caramail.com>

Has there been any kind of locomotion and/or biomecanical
study done on _A.atokensis_ ? Just seems pretty speedy-built
for such a large theropod ...

Weren't the Texas trackways in Farlow's 1981 analysis attributable to _Acrocanthosaurus_?
The ref:
Farlow, J. O. 1981. Estimates of dinosaur speeds from a new trackway site in Texas. Nature 294: 747-748.

Other than that, I don't think there's been much in relation to this animal's locomotory abilities.
