Hello Dr Hartman,
I'm a big fan of your work. I was wondering if you take commissions?
Hey Scott, quick question. While I've heard that most paleontologists specializing in raptor dinosaurs agree that the second toe claw is used for stabbing. I saw in a recent interview with Jim Kirkland that brought up a good point that supports the old slashing toe model. He said that the toe claw is laterally compressed in Utahraptor and, in life, may have had pseudo-serrations on it from the keratinous sheath having growth lines. Could this model be possible? The link to the interview is in this post. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tFfnfJrhfA
