Re: Dromaeosaurus Tracks?


All I can say is that dromaeosaur tracks have recently been described and a paper is being reviewed. Martin Lockley is working on them and that's about all I can say. You'll have to wait for the paper to come out possibly later this year or early next year it looks like.

Subject: Dromaeosaurus Tracks?

All skeletal reconstructions of Dromaeosaur feet I have seen always show the inside digit help upright. Have their ever been tracks found that prove this position is accurate? I realize that curvature of the "killing claw" suggests that they would keep the claw off the ground, but to what extent? Any help.
