A little more Raptorex

Well yesterday’s post was inevitably rather popular and I did promise a little more, so here it is. Above is the mounted cast of the holotype and below the life reconstruction sculpture of the head that was produced.

    Is the headgear based on actual findings, or artistic license (within the confines of what we know about feathers on theropods)?

    Artistic license.

    I never liked that design. Looks like he has a wig on his head.

    The skeleton looks very nice though.

    I never noticed before but those legs’ bones proportions scream “young tyrannosaurid”, but we’ll see. Great pictures btw!

    Slightly off topic, but this has been bothering me for a while. I have no idea how to pronounce the latinized species names when they end with a “i” or 2. For example, Raptorex kriegsteini, do I pronounce the “i” at the end of kriegsteini?

    Do anyone know?
