Plunderer from Utah by ScottHartman Plunderer from Utah by ScottHartman
Important programming note: Do not restore the current skeletal reconstruction. Utahraptor does NOT look like this. It's stranger and less Deinonychus-like than I realized.

Unfortunately I can't share the changes with you just now, but I didn't want anyone else to put time and effort into restoring Utahraptor from an outdated skeletal.

Further bulletins as events warrant.

Or maybe that Utahraptor was 5 meters long. Just as my opinion how big the Utahraptor was.

I take it that your new PhyloPic image for Utahraptor is based on the new material?

That certainly is an odd-looking lower jaw.

Am I right in thinking the arm is a lot shorter in the new reconstruction?

That image incorporates everything. The arm is relatively short by dromaeosaur standards.

Is this a sign that the paper is coming? :L

Not imminently, so I got permission to do the next best thing (no, not release the skeletal early).

Any new news on the Utahraptor's revised appearance?

I spoke with the author(s) at SVP, and it looks like we are probably looking at spring rather than fall, sorry.

Rumor has it that the supposed giant 36ft specimens might have come from a large undescribed tyrannosauroid... I wonder if confirmed, does this mean good ol' Utah is the same or regardless of the type of material, Utah was one "ugly motherfucker"?

The new material I used in the (still embargoed) skeletal is definitely Utahraptor, and it's definitely not 30 feet long (nor is any specimen that I can confirm). As for tyrannosaur material, I'm unaware of it, but that would be cool.
