Re: Tenontosaurus Skeletal Image?

Forwarded for Des Maxwell.
The tail of Tenontosaurus typically makes up a full two-thirds of the body  
length. What he sees in the skeletal images is correct.
Cathy Forster has a good pic of the skeleton in her 1990 paper on the  
post-cranial anatomy of Tenontosaurus in JVP:  
FORSTER, C.A. 1990. The postcranial skeleton of the ornithopod dinosaur  
Tenontosaurus tilletti. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 10(3): 273-294

Hi everyone,
Our animators are working on  creating a Tenontosaurus, but we are having a 
tough time finding a good  skeletal image of these fellows. In all of the 
images we have been able to  locate, the tail appears to be much longer, 
compared to body size, than what  I would expect.

Did these fellows have overly long tails?

Does  anyone have any images or skeletal measurements that can share?

Thanks  for any help.
