Re: Tyrannosaurus third finger

Actually, there are now 2 specimens showing this (Pecks Rex and Wyrex). Both 
ONLY have a third metacarpal, no evidence of fingers, thus will not affect 
previous paintings and scultptures of rex.

Okay then, I'd like to hear reactions to the third finger displayed on
the cast of the Peck's Rex manus. Did I miss previous discussion about
this on the list? I thought certain I'd hear people talking about it at
the meeting but nobody seemed very impressed.
