I'm sorry, I don't have a new Spinosaurus skeletal for you based on the new material. It will probably be a while yet until I do. But I was surprised enough by the proportions to want to check them, and the published lengths of the new neotype specimen don't actually match the reconstruction that was published in the paper. Above is my corrected version - to find out more about how I got there you can hop on over to my blog...and I'll apologize in advance for the wall of text that awaits you.

Could Troodon rotate its eyes, or were they fixed in their sockets like owls?

They are going to be fairly fixed, as in all theropods (and probably all dinosaurs).

So does that mean they can rotate their eyes just slightly?

A bit, but probably a lot of turning the entire head to see something.

What would be your opinion on a certain proposed neck posture for Spinosaurus?

I read it earlier. It's certainly an interesting idea - I'll need to look at some more data before I have a firm opinion.

Really glad to find your work here; I've been meaning to try working on some more accurate dinosaurs, and your skeletons are wonderful.

Hey I have a question about the Hesperosuchus(and various crocodylomorphs); would they be warm blooded due to their upright/erect stance and gracile form?
