Re: Xianlong skull reconstruction



Tracing the skull was difficult until I discovered, it's not the colors on the fossil skull that differentiate the bones from the matrix. The contrasting tones and colors represent skin, scales and such. Essentially it's the embossed shapes of the scattered bones beneath those overlying materials that tell the tale.

"Discovered" is a strong word. To test your hypothesis, you will need to see the specimen.
