Sue forelimb measurements?

Recommended Posts

The Amateur Paleontologist

For a school project, I am working on theropod evolution. One of the taxa I'm using is Tyrannosaurus rex (specifically the specimen FMNH PR2081 "Sue"). Would any of you know of a paper that gives measurements (including total length) of that specimen's forelimb?

 

Thanks for the help :)

Mesozoic Vertebrate Life 2001, chapter 9 covered that and Sue was a specimen used. @The Amateur Paleontologist

Just to know, which would be the best way to measure ungual length?

Along the yellow or the red line?

Never been schooled in proper measurements.  :D

Some papers Ive read indicate how the measurement was taken and a common one is: measured straight from the ventral articular surface to tip.
