Recent material---Ibrahim and Sereno...has caused a storm of controversy, which is healthy. Spinosaurus did not have arms suited to quadrupedal walking. Since when? If the legs were strong enough to be a good fulcrum and well muscled enough...and the tail was thick enough, maybe the arms and hands seldom had to support full front body weight. Pangolins have been used as an example of what looks like an obligate quadruped walking bipedally a lot. Balance and body strength are the keys, IMO.

It is claimed Spinosaurus could not pronate its hands and therefore could not walk on its forearms.  I call this into question. For argument's sake, I'll say it could not pronate its hands. Why would this be a barrier to quadrupedal walking? 

It was proposed Spinosaurus faced its hands outward and walked like a walrus, a procedure that strikes me as unlikely.

What do YOU think?

Yeah! YOU! 
Written for those of you who work off other artist/scientists hard work and research. Written for those who copy and change their work a little bit, then claim their science is the shit, the WAY THINGS ARE! And NOBODY had better question them, their "art" and their "science"....

Bugger off!!!!

I'm an artist. Yes, that IS a surprise, considering this is an art site. I do many kinds of art, including writing. Been through good times and bad, something I am sure is true for many of us here. I love creativity. I love it when someone works hard to improve, which, as far as I can see, is exemplified by this site.

I do digital art and normal art: painting drawing, and many, many messes. Fantasy, dinosaurs, animals, abstracts, surrealism, portraits, and some kinds I have no names for are the kinds of stuff I do.

I am often iconoclastic and irreverent, but always respectful of honest effort, as I see it.
