Travis Wood asks:
<< I am currently working on a life restoration of Triceratops in
plasticine. I was wondering if anyone could suggest some helpful
references. I'm planning to do some sketching at museums, but I will need
some good books to refer to once the actual sculpting begins. Anything
dealing with ceratopsian skeletal reconstructions, theories on posture,
etc. would be helpful. >>
Pack a nice lunch and perhaps a change of clothes and visit the DML archives
Enter "ceratopsian posture" and mine away. Greg Paul has published his views
on the subject. A somewhat different scheme utilized in a new mount of
Triceratops at the Smithsonian has yet to be published upon as far as I know.
That shoe has yet to drop.
As a starter, you might want to pick up a copy of _The Scientific American
Book of Dinosaurs_ for Greg's ideas and illustrations.
I wish Greg had a website. I'm very surprised he doesn't. DV
