So while debate is still ongoing, Spinosaurus definitly wasn't the tall long legged animal seen in Jurassic Park 3 was it ?

You got it. I'd also wager a pizza and a 6-pack that it wasn't a quadruped.

How much longer would the legs be then in the reconstructions currently going around in your opinion ?.

At any rate it's quite interesting how Spinosaurus seems so radically different to how Suchomimus and Baryonix look but then again they are different branches of the same family aren't they ?

I can't actually answer that until I get a chance to finish some of my dissertation work, a small subsection of which deals with missing vertebral data. The reason that's so important is the hind legs are too small (i.e. they are scaled correctly to the pelvis, and the pelvis is scaled correctly to the dorsal found with it) it's how they cross-scaled the earlier specimens into their composite that I take issue with (and so it's the torso that I think is too long...and of course we have no forelimb material at all that would tell us size).

... Something tells me that you wanted to be an archaeologist. ^w^

Thanks for commenting. It's actually paleontologists that study extinct animals while archeologists dig up ancient civilizations (though their root words mean the same thing, so this is just an odd tradition thing). And I am a paleontologist, I just use DA as a way to talk to the people who use my reconstructions :)

Ah! Right. Paleontologist. Of course. (silly me! :shakefist: Remake)

That's great! :D

I was wondering, have you ever done a Coelophysis skeletal (C. kayentakatae is the one I really need but any species is fine)?

Coelophysis is on the docket for this summer, but it almost certainly will be C. bauri.

Excellent! Out of curiosity, how much material is there for C. kayentakatae? I recall seeing a pretty well preserved skull but I don't think I've ever seen any other material for the species.
