Rhamphorhynchus wrist articulation
I am up to my eyeballs in a 1:1 model of Rhamphorhynchus sitting perched on
a branch and have run into a bit of a problem with the hand/wrist
articulation and could really use some help if anyone can come up with a
When perching (assuming Rhamphorhynchus did) would digits I-III foace fore
or aft? In other words, could pterosaurs rotate their wrists or were they
fairly fixed in position.
I would like to present the animal with the digits facing aft but will fold
them along digit IV if that is not possible.
I can post in-progress photos to a website if that would help.
Thanks in advance,
