Re: [dinosaur] R: French ornithomimosaur skeleton on display + Protoceratops + more

But note that the French ornithomimosaur apparently lacked a hand with fingers and had a stump forelimb (43+ specimens so far show no evidence of hand bones or digits). Manual elements (metacarpals) are known for Elaphrosaurus.  The skull is also toothless and had a beak--no skull known for Elaphrosaurus so hard to compare.
