Re: Pathology?

Why don't you tell the story of "Limpy", the gout-footed T. rex?  "Limpy"
ate too much meat and didn't get enough legumes and other complex
carbohydrates in his diet.  Dr. Carpenter has a pdf of the paper on his
web page at:


Look for "My Publications" and then click on "PDFs"

(BTW: The T. rex's name really isn't "Limpy".  I just got creative.  Oh,
and its diet was probably perfectly normal).
