Re: Deltadromeus teeth
So, do you think the arguement goes like, its Morracan, its a raptor,
therefore it must be D. agilis? I believe what is know about D. agilis
is that its a big abelisaur. You don't need to be a paleontologist to
know that a 25+ ft therapod doesn't have teeth the size of a dime.
Have any smaller raptors been found in Kem-Kem that might explain all
these little teeth?
