Re: Nessov's Therizinosaurs

1. Given that we now know that therizinosaurs were maniraptors, and we

Not at all.

I figured. Too bad!

Would you mind elaborating on that, though? Is it just because we now have good fossils of basal therizinosaurs and they aren't sloth-like? Or is there more to it?

2. Has the material from Uzbekistan ever been described or figured
anywhere else? It seems to me that it would still be quite
scientifically valuable.

Wait for the paper. :-)

Aha, say no more. :)

Thanks Mickey!
