Spinosaurus sail shape

Spinosaurus sail shape

I have finally got back around to working on a new Spinosaurus skeletal from scratch. I'm exploring some of the issues on my website, including a critical look at the new sail shape everyone seems keen on copying.

I'm afraid my summer schedule isn't going to give me much time for DA posting, but I did want to take a moment to introduce you to a new small, winged dinosaur from the Jurassic of North America that I and my coauthors named - Hesperornithoides miessleri.

That's fine with me. Good luck on your project!
