Here on DA Guanlong came from behind to barely eek out a victory over Yutyrannus, 35 to 33 (with Protoceratops having a strong showing in third with 29 votes). Over on my website it was a very different story, as Sauroposeidon and Guanlong showed massive surges on the last day, with Sauroposeidon almost tripling its vote total to snatch second place (with 127 total votes) and Guanlong more than quadrupling its vote total to gain a ridiculous 347 votes.

So while it seems like a fan or three of Guanlong may have worked overtime to ensure victory Sunday, it does match with the non-anonymous vote on DA, so I suppose all's well that ends well. So look for that skeletal towards the end of the week, but look for a different skeletal soon, and perhaps some hints at the long-awaited revision of Utahraptor near midweek.

Scott do you think this drawing is mine is anatomicly accurate?

It's generally pretty solid, but the back of the leg (behind the knee) seems to have not moved enough to keep up with the knee joint as it moved forward while sitting down.

Hello Scott Hartman. I have another thing to ask you. Some people appear to be of the idea that theropods (referring to non-dromaeosaurids) could use their hindlimbs and pedal unguals as weapons, or at the least, could use them to help pin a prey item that's fallen to the ground. Do you believe this is accurate? I thank you for your time.

It depends on the theropod. Any animal will use what it has in order to secure food, so I don't doubt that a theropod would use its hind limbs to hold down prey if it aided in catching dinner and didn't threaten to tip itself over (so a T. rex might be more likely to apply the technique to a Pachycephalosaurus or a juvenile Triceratops than a fully grown Tric), but most don't show any obvious adaptations until you get up to deinonychosaurs (dromaeosaurs + troodontids), where some evidence has accumulated that the specialized feet may have helped pin down prey while the predators stood on them and began eating them while still alive. Of course others have interpreted those claws as stabbing or slicing weapons, and that's also possible (and not necessarily mutually exclusive - animals can employ different techniques for different prey). One thing I don't find very likely is that the enlarged toe claws were used for climbing - their cross-sectional anatomy is not what I would expect in that case.

I love your work! Some of the best! Are planning a Life Reconstruction of the feathered Deinonychus and the feathered Struthimimus or Gallimimus sometime in the future (I'm struggling with finding proper anatomical resources because I've been trying to draw dinosaurs - They're very inaccurate and dated in my 'representation')?
