Re: Speaking of Protoarchaeopteryx...

Speaking of Protoarchaeopteryx... Why is it that any sort of photo of the
specimen(s) is nearly impossible to come by? In fact, one hardly sees the animal
reconstructed either...

The only known specimen has a head that is crushed beyond all recognition. The tail looks as if it hasn't been fully prepared...

Only a few years ago was someone able to tell (onlist) that at least one wing feather is preserved.

So, does anyone have any good specimen photos of
Protoarchaeopteryx other than the ones from the Nature paper???

There is one in National Geographic of July 1998. That said... it isn't good.
