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.

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?

They wouldn't be warm-blooded because of it, but some have argued on other grounds that they may have had an elevated metabolism.

I see, its because the erect stance was used to argue that dinosaurs are warm blooded I thought the same would apply to Hesperosuchus. On what grounds do some argue that they had an elevated metabolism?

I've taken some interest in the Trooden, though I've never actually gotten to see a fossil of it myself. Do you know of any, or could possibly find some good references to it's skeletal/muscle studies? I've seen some illustrations in books and such, but not really much, so I don't really know what to look for.

Do you plan on updating your Spinosaurus skeletal now that the new material has been published?

It will certainly require at least some revision. How much I'm not yet sure.
