Dromaeosaur tails...

Were the tails of dromaeosaur dinosaurs (raptors) completely stiff or did they exhibit some amount of an S-curve? This is the question posed in a post last week on the blog Tetrapod Zoology (see sidebar), "What the hell is going on with dromaeosaur tails?" This new evidence has major implications for paleoartists!

It looks strange to me, but just because you're used to seeing something one way doesn't mean it's correct!
