Re: Rotund Triceratops



Partly ossified intracoracoid cartilages were described from articulated 
Iguanodon specimens by Norman 1980 in his description of I. bernissartensis. 

The probable Triceratops trackway shows the hindfeet contacting the midline, 
contrary to the laterally separated feet in the new mount. 

The articulated Triceratops now in Japan shows the posterior trunk ribs 
bunched together as in other ceratopsid skeletons, and the chest ribs strongly 
swept backwards. 

Peter et al are going to try out these features (including mounting the 
skeleton to walk out the trackway) in their next mount of the cast.
