RE: Whose the "Tuck" in Heterodontosaurus tucki?


The closest thing to an answer to your question is to be found back on
2/13/2002 in the DML.  The tail end of the message from Robert G. Tuck
Jr. reads:

        "It's my understanding that that most wonderful of all
dinosaurs,      _Heterodontosaurus tucki_, received its specific epithet
from a generous         patron (and my still long-lost wealthy "uncle")
who funded the recovery of,     and research on, this splendid example
of such a noble creature. :-)

        -= Tuck =-"

This may only be a starting point in your search.

Good luck,

Subject: Whose the "Tuck" in Heterodontosaurus tucki?

Hi again everybody :-)

_Heterodontosaurus_ seems to be one of those popular dinosaurs which 
receives vast press on several Dinosaur-related websites.  Not maybe as 
monumental as T-rex or the "Raptors," but somewhat significant.  (I put 
"heterodontosaurus" in Google and got 100+ matches!)
However, none of the many (MANY) sites I visited during my recent
session offered any information on this illusive "Tuck."
Can anyone help?  It would be most appreciated.

Thanks and Hope All the DMLers have a happy and safe holiday :-)
