RE: Brachiosaur flexibility and face-shape (Was: Terra Nova: thoughts)

William King Gregory  published a sauropod reconstruction with splayed 
forelimbs in _Evolution  Emerging_ (1951). Unfortunately, I could never find 
anything in the text to  explain it in that wonderful two volume hodge-podge it 
appeared in. The work  also features an attempt at an accurate 
reconstruction of Tyrannosaurus and an  reproduction of Erwin Christman's 
vertebral column drawing from  Osborn (1917) in which the right and left 
halves are reunited. One wonders if  Charles R Knight consulted with Gregory 
when he painted the famous Brontosaurus  mural in the Field Museum. He 
certainly utilized the Christman drawing. DV
