RE: Acrocanthosaurus atokensis locomotion



I wrote:

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.

Correction: I double checked this today, and as it turns out, Farlow makes no mention as to what might have made those tracks. Speed estimates in this paper range from 1.8 - 12.1 m/s, using Alexander's old equation.
Just clearing up any confusion.
