I much prefer Greg Paul's theropod reconstructions, which have a concave lower
belly between the ribs
and the pubic boot, rather than tissue joining the front of the chest to the
pubic boot in a straight line.
These latter sort of reconstructions seem to treat the fleshy parts like canvas
being stretched between
