Subject: Anything new about Pelecanimimus?
In the cource of my studies, I have come accross Pelecanimimus polyodon,
that primitive ornithomime with lots of teeth and preserved skin. My
questions are these:
1) I have heard a wattle/dewlap and a fleshy crest mentioned; what do these
things look like?
2)Have further studies revealed anything more about Pelecanimimus? I
haven't heard anything about it since its discovery.
3)Isn't it strange that an ornithomime didn't have feathers? Was this lack
secondary or primary?
Eric Buffetaut believes this might be a spinosaurid and not an ornithomimid.
I like it. This may be a case of dinosaurs mimicking the ostrich mimics. :>
