Re: Juravenator



That's the Berlin Archaeopteryx specimen, not "Juravenator".

Can't see the photo clearly but it bears the same kind of position (folded
arms with expanded hands) as some *Archaeotperyx* or *Microraptor* ones .
Postmortem convergence, due to... what? You can't expect all individuals to
die the same way. Is there any muscle/ligament or what you want that can
produce this? Are birds and kin known to present statistically the same
posture after death?
Just curious
Cheers,
Jean-Michel
