Osteology of Balaur bondoc



European, short-footed, double-sickle claws, maybe two-fingered, stocky, 
robust, unique. Phylogeny speculates a near-*Velociraptor mongoliensis* 
placement, but is preliminary. Specimens are not particularly juvenile (there 
are two, one larger than the holotype and possibly not a specimen of *Balaur 
bondoc*).

"Ever since man first left his cave and met a stranger with a
different language and a new way of looking at things, the human race
has had a dream: to kill him, so we don't have to learn his language or
his new way of looking at things." --- Zapp Brannigan (Beast With a Billion 
Backs)
