RE: Acrocanthosaurus atokensis locomotion



From: "Jaime A. Headden" <qilongia@yahoo.com>

Nonetheless, Farlow has made statements, along with Thomas, as to >the origin of the tracks as being *Acrocanthosaurus* or similar large
theropod.

Are these, in fact, the same tracks, though? In the original paper (Farlow, 1981), the tracks are always associated with the F^6 Ranch, and the association with the "Paluxy River" is never made. Not only that, but the trackway described in Farlow (1981) is said to be "new", whereas the Paluxy River tracks (supposedly made by _Acrocanthosaurus_) were discovered 1938 by Roland T. Bird.
They ARE both from Texas, though...
