Parts of Plateosaurus

Well the SV-POW boys won’t do too well out of this as its rather vertebra-light, but here are a bunch of details of the Plateosaurus mount I showed yesterday.

    OUCH! The poor animal!
    I mentioned the hands and elbows last time, now your pictures show another damage of SMNS 13200 very well: the ilia have shifted backwards compared to the sacrum, so that the first sacral can be seen in lateral view. The foot is also messed up, with MT 2 behind MT 3 – it’s a cast, why didn’t they correct that?

    Terrifying zombie hands!

    Lovely. Din’t get too much from the whole-skeleton pics but these are great. That hand is freaky.

    Those hands and claws are massive or at least more impressive than I actually noticed before.

    . . . what is the size of one of those claws?
