Am I being very simple? A search for a comprehensive description of Velociraptor



Hi folks,

I've been searching high and low for details on the postcranial anatomy
for Velociraptor (mongoliensis ideally), but can't find anything really
comprehensive. Is there a good overview of this material anywhere?
Something with a substantial number of illustrations of actual
specimens, not mere lateral reconstructions? It feels like there should
be: the quality, popularity and completeness of Velociraptor material
seems to make it an ideal candidate for a good osteological description,
but all I can find are very papers dealing with very specific parts of
its anatomy.

Cheers,

Mark
