Re: Carnegie Diplodocus

The original Iguanodons from Bernissart can not be remounted in a quadrupedal stance without huge technical problems and irreversible damage for the skeletons. But a cast of I. bernissartensis is mounted close to them in a quadrupedal position. And I suppose that explanations will expose the reasons of that in the new exhibition (open to the public on 27 October at Brussels).

Oops, actually Luis didn't write that, I got the messages mixed up somehow.

It was actually ackolbert@aol.com's message on behalf of the list owner,
according to that message itself.

Anyhow, it's refreshing to see some creativity and tradition-breaking in
new dino mounts. Whcih reminds me: When are those European museums ever
going to remount their Iguanodons so their tails aren't being snapped in
half, and why do all Mamenchisaurus mounts still have a Diplodocus head
rather than the one preserved with M. youngi?
