Re: Venom in Sinornithosaurus
The funny thing is that Gong et al. claim the roots were also exposed
_in life_, which is a _really_ extraordinary claim for which evidence
has yet to be found.
Well, is it dubious? Gong et al. state that the roots ARE exposed;
"Interestingly, much of the effective erupted length of the teeth is
composed of the tooth root"
But I agree with you about a CT scan.
