Re: Emus a Model for Dinosaurs?

Quoting Michael Skrepnick <palaeopaint@dinosaursinart.com>:

. . . am still interested in why a 4th trochanter would evolve in Velociraptor and not Deinonychus, when except for size, both have nearly identical design which would seem to dictate similar patterns of movement.

Difference in age between the two individuals involved (old _Velociraptor_ individual, young _Deinonychus_)? Different sexes? Or is the pattern consistent for all _V._ and _D._ specimens?
