N2 - Neuroimaging studies in stroke survivors have suggested that adaptive plasticity occurs following stroke. However, the complex temporal dynamics of neural reorganization after injury make the interpretation of functional imaging studies equivocal. In the present study in adult squirrel monkeys, intracortical microstimulation (ICMS) techniques were used to monitor changes in representational maps of the distal forelimb in the supplementary motor area (SMA) after a unilateral ischemic infarct of primary motor (M1) and premotor distal forelimb representations (DFLs). In each animal, ICMS maps were derived at early (3 wk) and late (13 wk) postinfarct ...
A variety of skilled reaching tasks have been developed to evaluate forelimb function in rodent models. The single pellet skilled reaching task and pasta matrix task have provided valuable insight into recovery of forelimb function in models of neurological injury and disease. Recently, several automated measures have been developed to reduce the cost and time burden of forelimb assessment in rodents. Here, we provide a within-subject comparison of three common forelimb assessments to allow direct evaluation of sensitivity and efficiency across tasks. Rats were trained to perform the single pellet skilled reaching task, the pasta matrix task, and the isometric pull task. Once proficient on all three tasks, rats received an ischemic lesion of motor cortex and striatum to impair use of the trained limb. On the second week post-lesion, all three tasks measured a significant deficit in forelimb function. Performance was well-correlated across tasks. By the sixth week post-lesion, only the isometric ...
Bones of birds are hollow which makes them light-weighted while internal struts or cross walls make them strong. Bone laminarity in the avian forelimb skeleton and its relationship to flight … Joints of the Distal Forelimb Carpal Joint. In the Casuaridae, Dinornithidoe, and Apterygidae, the fore-limb is extraordinarily reduced, and may become rudimentary. The digits are webbed and have claws (1-2 inches long) that can be used for grooming and fighting purposes. Generally, the forelimb consists of three or four major segments, as observed in a human arm that has the upper arm, the forearm, and the hand as the three segments.Many animals have common bones in the forelimbs, such as the humerus in the upper segment, the radius and the ulna in the lower section, and the phalanges that refer to the bones in the paws or hooves. In humans the pectoral girdle consists of the scapula and the clavicle (collarbone). Seal Forelimb KO-285 $310.00 Our seal forelimb is in three pieces; the hand itself is ...

In the rodent motor cortex, two distinct forelimb motor areas have been identified: caudal forelimb area (CFA) and rostral forelimb area (RFA). The CFA and RFA are thought to be equivalent to the hand area in primary motor area and premotor/supplementary motor area in primates, respectively. Although anatomical connectivity and firing property of neurons are different between these forelimb motor areas, one of the major difference is responsiveness to the somatosensory input. Sievert et al., (1986) performed single-unit recording in the forelimb areas in awake rats, and showed that almost no neurons in the RFA responded to sensory stimulus (1 / 117 neurons) while 30% of the CFA neurons (n=114) received somatosensory input. In contrast to the rodent, somatosensory stimulus evoked neural firing in both premotor and supplementary motor areas in primate (Wiesendanger et al., 1985). It is still unknown whether the above difference reflects species difference between rats and primates. In the present ...
Here we report on pyramidal and reticulospinal excitation in forelimb motoneurons in the adult mouse using intracellular recordings in vivo. The results have been obtained in BALB/C mice, which were anesthetized with midazolam fentanyl/fluanison. In contrast to the rat, only weak and infrequent pyramidal excitation could be evoked with a minimal trisynaptic linkage. Disynaptic reticulospinal excitation could always be evoked, as well as monosynaptic excitation from the medial longitudinal fasciculus. The results suggest that the reticulospinal pathway in the mouse is important in voluntary motor control of the forelimbs and that the role of the corticospinal tract might be different in mouse compared with rat. Our study provides an opening for studying the effect of genetic manipulation on specified descending systems in the mouse in vivo.. ...

The precision of skilled forelimb movement has long been presumed to rely on rapid feedback corrections triggered by internally directed copies of outgoing motor commands, but the functional relevance of inferred internal copy circuits has remained unclear. One class of spinal interneurons implicated in the control of mammalian forelimb movement, cervical propriospinal neurons (PNs), has the potential to convey an internal copy of premotor signals through dual innervation of forelimb-innervating motor neurons and precerebellar neurons of the lateral reticular nucleus. Here we examine whether the PN internal copy pathway functions in the control of goal-directed reaching. In mice, PNs include a genetically accessible subpopulation of cervical V2a interneurons, and their targeted ablation perturbs reaching while leaving intact other elements of forelimb movement. Moreover, optogenetic activation of the PN internal copy branch recruits a rapid cerebellar feedback loop that modulates forelimb motor ...

A forelimb is an anterior limb (arm, leg, or similar appendage) on a terrestrial vertebrates body. For quadrupeds, the term foreleg is often used instead. (A forearm however is the part of the arm or forelimb between the elbow and the wrist.) All vertebrate forelimbs are homologous, meaning that they all evolved from the same structures. For example, the flipper of a turtle or of a dolphin, the arm of a human, the foreleg of a horse, and the wings of both bats and birds are ultimately analogous, despite the large differences between them. de Beer, Gavin (1956). Vertebrate zoology: an introduction to the comparative anatomy, embryology, and evolution of chordate animals. Sidgwick and Jackson. Bat wings are however composed largely of a thin membrane of skin supported on the five fingers, whereas bird wings are composed largely of feathers supported on much reduced fingers, with finger 2 supporting the alula and finger 4 the primary feathers of the wing; there are only distant homologies between ...
1. The effects of ingested grilled beef steak (250 g raw weight of lean meat) and infusion of leucine (3.8 g) on human forelimb metabolism were studied by monitoring the concentrations of various metabolites in arterial (A) and venous (V) blood of four overnight fasted and rested men.. 2. The mean basal A-V for branched-chain 2-oxo acid (BCOA) was small (−3.6 μmol/l). After ingestion of steak or administration of leucine there were large positive increases in the A-V for branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) but increase in the negative A-V for BCOA was relatively small.. 3. Within 2 h of ingestion of steak, BCAA accounted for approx. 50% of those amino acids with a positive A-V and glutamine for up to 75% of those with a negative A-V; the negative A-V for alanine decreased to 10% of its basal value. Infusion of leucine produced a large positive A-V for leucine by forelimb, a doubling in the negative A-V for glutamine and a rise in the blood glutamine concentration; the negative A-V for alanine ...
The growth of a rat forelimb grown in the lab offers hope that one day amputees may receive fully functional, biological replacement limbs
The forelimb of the flightless emu is a vestigial structure, with greatly reduced wing elements and digit loss. To explore the molecular and cellular mechanisms associated with the evolution of vestigial wings and loss of flight in the emu, key limb patterning genes were examined in developing embryos. Limb development was compared in emu versus chicken embryos. Immunostaining for cell proliferation markers was used to analyze growth of the emu forelimb and hindlimb buds. Expression patterns of limb patterning genes were studied, using whole-mount in situ hybridization (for mRNA localization) and RNA-seq (for mRNA expression levels). The forelimb of the emu embryo showed heterochronic development compared to that in the chicken, with the forelimb bud being retarded in its development. Early outgrowth of the emu forelimb bud is characterized by a lower level of cell proliferation compared the hindlimb bud, as assessed by PH3 immunostaining. In contrast, there were no obvious differences in apoptosis in

Background Forelimb Asymmetry Test is a simple test of motor function, using exploration behavior of a rat in a novel environment and counting the number of times that a rat touches the wall with either forepaw. Our lab has noticed, however, that there appears to be an increased number of fingertip touches to the wall following a stroke in the impaired forelimb. New method We counted the number of times that the animal either laid its palm flat against the wall of the chamber or touched the wall with only its fingertips, for both the left and right forepaws. We also separated bouts of exploration, so we could clearly determine if fingertip touches normally were associated with a transition from resting state to exploration state. Results and comparison with existing methods Fishers exact test indicated that there were significant differences in the way that the animals touched the wall pre-stroke compared to post-stroke, with more fingertip touches occurring post-stroke. Counting palm touches as
Scientists recently identified two types of neurons that enable the spinal cord to control skilled forelimb movement. Neuroscientist Eiman Azim discusses the work in a Q&A.
Denervated forelimbs and contralateral innervated forelimbs of Ambystoma larvae were injured internally distal to the elbow by compression with watchmakers forceps. Innervated controls completely repaired the crush injury within one week; denervated limbs failed to repair the injury and exhibited varying degrees of limb regression. Histological examination revealed that the process of tissue dedifferentiation initiated by injury was more extensive in denervated, regressing limbs than in controls. In innervated limbs, both the DNA labelling index and the mitotic index peaked approximately 4-6 days after the injury and returned to baseline levels by 10 days. In denervated limbs, the DNA labelling index also increased and remained at an elevated level for at least 2 weeks after the injury, but significant mitotic activity was not observed. The data indicate that intact nerves are not needed for cellular dedifferentiation, cell cycle re-entry, and DNA synthesis in injured limbs, but are required ...

Sabertooth members of the Felidae, Nimravidae, and Barbourofelidae are well-known for their elongated saber-shaped canines. However, within these groups, there is a wide range of independently derived tooth shapes and lengths, including dirk-tooth and scimitar-tooth morphs. In conjunction with the saberteeth, forelimbs were also used to subdue prey. Thus, there may be a functional link between canine shape and forelimb morphology. Because there are no living sabertooth forms for comparison, extant felids make a good proxy for examining the morphology of these extinct organisms. Here, I examine the forelimb morphology of different sabertooth groups from across North America; I address whether forelimb morphologies are associated with tooth morphologies, and whether these associated tooth and forelimb morphologies are convergent among different families. To answer these questions, I analyzed six functional indices of the forelimbs and two canine characters for 13 species of sabertooth predators ...
Structural deformation can be critical in determining the success or failure of exploration and development in foreland thrust belts. Establishing structural geometry, especially of the steep fold forelimbs that are difficult to image seismically, is critical for reducing uncertainty and risk on a variety of scales - from defining trap integrity, quantifying trap volumes, assessing juxtaposition of associated faults to forecasting bed-scale damage within reservoirs and seals which will impact hydrocarbon column height, reserve estimation and production rates. Steep fold forelimbs also provide significant challenges when drilling wells including accurate definition of sub-surface targets, directional control of the well-bore and well-bore stability problems; all of these issues can add significantly to the cost of drilling and the risk of having to side-track the well and having a well-bore that enables a successful completion and testing program for the well. Existing approaches apply a narrow ...

Two ordered representations of the body surface, S-I and S-II, have been described on the cortical surface of the brains of a variety of mammals; additional separate topographical maps have been found in the somatosensory cortex of the cat and monkey. Except for minor variations in the placement of the body parts, the basic somatotopy of the maps is remarkably consistent across species. As the reasons for this consistency and the minor variations are unclear, we examined the somatotopy of the bat, whose body plan has been modified extensively so that the forelimb can be used for flight. We report here that in both S-I and S-II of the grey-headed flying fox, not only is the representation of the distal forelimb displaced from its usual position on the map, but the digits are directed caudally instead of rostrally as they are in all other mammals studied. The variant somatotopy appears to reflect the postural differences between flying and walking mammals, supporting the notion that topographical maps may
Current treatments for ischemic stroke have centered on the administration of a cells plasminogen activator, although the associated side effects and subsequent reperfusion injury remain challenging. Peripheral electrical stimulation has shed light on therapeutic interventions for ischemia by increasing cerebral blood flow (CBF) to the prospective region through collateral circulation, although the mechanism remains elusive. Here, a focal photothrombotic ischemic (PTI) stroke was induced in the right hemispheric main somatosensory forelimb cortex (S1FL) of rat brains, and the therapeutic effects of forelimb and hindlimb stimulation were characterized at the contralesional S1FL. We observed that PTI stroke rats that received forelimb stimulation exhibited significantly restored CBF of the ischemic penumbra (for the S1FL and for the primary somatosensory hindlimb cortex, respectively), electrocorticography (ECoG) delta band coherence of the intercortical S1FL (or peripheral stimulation.9,10,12,16 ...

We are investigating the neural mechanisms involved in programming and executing hand movements by recording neural activity in monkeys trained to manually track visual targets. We are particularly interested in studying premotoneuronal cells in motor cortex and spinal cord that produce postspike effects on forelimb muscle activity. By knowing both the response patterns of these cells during movements and their output connections to target muscles we can make important causal inferences about their contribution to movements. The first recordings of spinal interneurons in behaving monkeys have revealed that spinal neurons share many properties of cortical neurons, including preparation for instructed movements.. We are currently developing an implantable brain-computer interface to record activity of cortical neurons in monkeys and convert this activity to stimuli delivered at sites in motor cortex, spinal cord or muscles. An implanted array of microelectrodes records neural activity; and a ...

Changes in the set of genes targeted by a conserved selector gene explain the divergence of homologous structures: insect hindwings (a) and vertebrate forelimbs (b). The conserved expression of selector genes Ubx (insect hindwings) and Tbx5 (vertebrate forelimbs) indicates that ancestral forelimbs of vertebrates also expressed these genes and the ancestral hindwings of insects.
Last Monday, we said our last goodbye to our dear hamster, Bacon. Less than 4 months ago, she got hurt in a scuffle with a rat and broke her forelimb. We brought her to the vet, who was not very optimistic. I didnt think shed survive. But she did. With vitamins and TLC, she did. She regained her strength and the use of her forelimb. Even with a broken forelimb, she never missed running in her wheel. We had to remove it for a time to let her heal. But a month ago, I noticed a general decline in her health. She wasnt as active as before. She wasnt trying to stage a prison break. She developed holes on her earlobes. Her breathing was labored. She didnt stuff her cheeks as much. Her neck became pronounced. But she still loved chocolates and sunflower seeds. And her multivitamins. How she loved her multivitamins...she would stuff the vitamins syringe in her pouch if I would let her. After a couple of weeks, she seemed to have regained a bit of her strength and I held on to hope that shed last ...
We examined the relationship of musculoskeletal risk factors underlying force and repetition on tissue responses in an operant rat model of repetitive reaching and pulling, and if force x repetition interactions were present, indicative of a fatigue failure process. We examined exposure-dependent changes in biochemical, morphological and sensorimotor responses occurring with repeated performance of a handle-pulling task for 12 weeks at one of four repetition and force levels: 1) low repetition with low force, 2) high repetition with low force, 3) low repetition with high force, and 4) high repetition with high force (HRHF). Rats underwent initial training for 4-6 weeks, and then performed one of the tasks for 12 weeks, 2 hours/day, 3 days/week. Reflexive grip strength and sensitivity to touch were assayed as functional outcomes. Flexor digitorum muscles and tendons, forelimb bones, and serum were assayed using ELISA for indicators of inflammation, tissue stress and repair, and bone turnover.
When a dog loses a limb, each of his other limbs has to carry more of his weight. The burden increases the most for the remaining leg on the same end of the dog as the amputated limb. Dogs carry about 60% of their weight on their front end. If you could compel a dog to stand with each foot on a separate scale, youd find each front limb holding up about 30% of their body weight apiece, and each hind leg holding up about 20% of their body weight. So, do the math: If one front limb is removed, the remaining front leg has to hold up a whopping 60% of the dogs body weight by itself! If a hind leg is removed, the remaining hind limb will need to carry about 40% of the dogs weight. This underscores the need to keep the dogs weight under strict control; you dont want any of the limbs to carry any more weight than they must. These dogs should always be kept thin.. Carrying an increased percentage of the dogs weight as he ambulates is not the only increased burden for his remaining limbs. A single ...
Twenty-eight mice (129SVE) were used for in vivo hyperspectral fluorescence imaging (Fig. 2). Prior to imaging, a hair trimmer (Chromini Type 1591; Wahl, Sterling, IL) was used to shave the head, neck, abdominal, and forelimb areas. 27 Mice were anesthetized through induction of isoflurane for 60 seconds in a chamber and maintenance through an air tube for 3 to 4 minutes during hyperspectral system imaging (Maestro; Cambridge Research & Instrumentation Inc., Woburn, MA). Anesthesia was discontinued after the imaging and mice were placed back in their cage between imaging sessions. The anesthesia was repeated only during the imaging sessions at various time points such as prior to tracer injection, and at 5, 20, 40, 70, 120, and 360 minutes after injection. Mice were monitored throughout the experiment. No abnormal behavior was observed due to anesthesia. The excitation and emission filters were 503 to 555 nm, 580 nm long pass, respectively. The tunable filter was automatically stepped in 10-nm ...
Results. Fore-first, synchronous, and hind-first dissociations were found in horses trotting at (3.3 m/s � 10%). In these speed-matched trials, mean centre of pressure (COP) cranio-caudal location differed significantly between the three dissociation categories. The COP moved systematically and significantly (P D :001) from being more caudally located in hind-first dissociation (mean locationD0.41�0.04) through synchronous (0.36 � 0.02) to a more cranial location in fore-first dissociation (0.32 � 0.02). Dissociation patterns were found to influence function, posture, and balance parameters. Over a moderate speed range, peak vertical forelimb GRF had a strong relationship with dissociation time (RD:594; P ,:01) and speed (RD:789; P ,:01), but peak vertical hindlimb GRF did not have a significant relationship with dissociation time (RD:085; P ,0:05) or speed (RD:223; P D:023 ...

Ceratopsid dinosaurs traditionally have been restored with sprawling forelimbs and were considered unable to run at high speeds. An alternative view restores the ceratopsids as rhinoceros-like with parasagittal forelimb kinematics and the ability to run faster than extant elephants. Several anatomical difficulties concerning the mounting of ceratopsid skeletons with nearly parasagittal forelimbs stem not from the forelimb itself, but from errors in rib and vertebral articulation. Matching a skeletal restoration to a probable ceratopsid trackway shows that the hands were placed directly beneath the glenoids, and that manual impressions were directed laterally, not medially as in sprawling reptiles. Pedal impressions in trackways are medial to the manual impressions, owing to the slightly averted elbow and to the asymmetrical distal femoral condyles, which directed the crus slightly medially. The limbs of ceratopsians of all sizes display substantial joint flexure, strongly indicating that the ...

As mentioned above, dogs wheelchair is a useful and important product that helps the dogs to move around after paralysis. Though there are two types of dogs wheelchair, the wheelchair for forelimbs is useful compared to hind limbs. The forelimbs wheelchair has a specialized design with it.. Mostly dogs withhold the entire weight of their body within the forelimbs than the hind limbs. Hence, the dogs wheelchair for front legs is formulated with weight bearing capability. Further, the front wheel acts perfectly as the forelimbs in dogs and so the dogs can use it with higher gain.. The design of the forelimb wheelchair is simple and elegant. The wheelchair is designed lightweight, and so dogs can move it effectively. Further, the wheelchair helps the dogs in accessing all the functions of the forelimbs with the help of the wheels.. The forelimb wheelchair is designed in two types. One is with two wheels on the front and other with a quad wheel design. Than the two-wheel design, the four wheels ...
BACKGROUND: Cell types are defined at the molecular level during embryogenesis by a process called pattern formation and created by the selective utilization of combinations of sequence-specific transcription factors. Developmental programs define the sets of genes that are available to each particular cell type, and real-time biochemical signaling interactions define the extent to which these sets are used at any given time and place. Gene expression is regulated through the integrated action of many cis-regulatory elements, including core promoters, enhancers, silencers, and insulators. The chromatin state in developing body parts provides a code to cellular populations that directs their cell fates. Chromatin profiling has been a method of choice for mapping regulatory sequences in cells that go through developmental transitions. RESULTS: We used antibodies against histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylations, a modification associated with promoters and open/active chromatin, histone H3 lysine 27 ...
Background: and purpose - Data in humans and in non-human animal models suggest that most recovery from motor impairment occurs in the first 4 weeks after stroke and is mediated in part by increased responsiveness to training in this short time period. We tested the hypothesis that there is a gradient of diminishing responsiveness to training in the first week after stroke in the mouse. We then tested whether fluoxetine can extend the time window over which large training-related gains can be expected.. Methods: Adult C57Bl/6 mice were trained to perform a skilled prehension task to an asymptotic level of performance after which they underwent photocoagulation-induced stroke or sham stroke in the caudal forelimb area (CFA can be considered rodent primary motor cortex). The mice were then retrained after a 1- or 7-day delay in the presence or absence of fluoxetine injected IP daily beginning after a 1- or 7-day delay.. Results: Training-associated recovery of prehension was complete if training ...
The origin of birds (Aves) is one of the great evolutionary transitions. Fossils show that many unique morphological features of modern birds, such as feathers, reduction in body size, and the semilunate carpal, long preceded the origin of clade Aves, but some may be unique to Aves, such as relative elongation of the forelimb. We study the evolution of body size and forelimb length across the phylogeny of coelurosaurian theropods and Mesozoic Aves. Using recently developed phylogenetic comparative methods, we find an increase in rates of body size and body size dependent forelimb evolution leading to small body size relative to forelimb length in Paraves, the wider clade comprising Aves and Deinonychosauria. The high evolutionary rates arose primarily from a reduction in body size, as there were no increased rates of forelimb evolution. In line with a recent study, we find evidence that Aves appear to have a unique relationship between body size and forelimb dimensions. Traits associated with ...
This is something Ive been saying for a long time: That the shift from quadrupedality to bipedality in various archosaurs (including dinosaurs) was associated mostly with a locomotory function (cursoriality). It had little or nothing to do with freeing up the forelimbs for non-locomotory functions (like grasping prey or plants). http://dml.cmnh.org/2011Oct/msg00086.html http://dml.cmnh.org/2011Oct/msg00157.html Once the forelimbs became free from their use in terrestrial locomotion, *then* they could be exploited for other functions. Such as predation; or as defensive weapons; or as wings. However, by and large, for many non-avian theropods the forelimbs dont appear to have been terribly useful. Velociraptorines are an exception, in which the forelimbs were apparently used to grasp hefty prey. But most other predatory theropods seem to have used their forelimbs to *help* position or secure prey already captured by the jaws or feet. Not the carnotaurines though, which shrunk their forelimbs ...

Fast-myosin in frozen histological sections of eight, 10, 11 and nine muscles of the upper forelimb, lower forelimb, upper hindlimb and lower hindlimb, respectively, of goats was quantified by an immunohistochemical micromethod based on the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The structure of the muscles is well preserved during the immunohistochemical measurement. High fast-myosin levels (more than 201 mg/g total protein) were observed in the triceps brachii (lateral head), rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, gastrocnemius (lateral head) and long digital extensor muscles. In contrast, low fast-myosin levels (less than 50 mg/g) were found in the triceps brachii (medial head), superficial digital flexor, vastus intermedialis, and soleus muscles. Fast-myosin-positive fibres (type II or fast-twitch type) were distributed more in the superficial regions than in the deeper regions in the triceps brachii (lateral and long heads), biceps brachii, brachialis, biceps ...
View Notes - sept 24 from GEO 420k at University of Texas. ○ Wings • Conclusion: Although the bone forelimbs hold different functions for the different organisms, they are composed of the same
(Phys.org) -An international team of researchers working together to discover how, when and why birds have evolved to stand in a crouching position, have come to the conclusion that it was due much more to the growth of forelimbs than a reduction in size of the tail. The team describes in their paper published in the journal Nature, how they built computer simulations to recreate in a virtual sense, the evolution process that led to the crouching position and possibly the evolution of flight.

Then he brought up another cool example of the role of regulatory genes, from work by Chris Cretekos involving the differences in development between mouse and bat forelimbs. Myers blogged about this work too. Go check it out. There are cool pics of bat embryos. Basically the researchers were able to remove regulatory genes that enhance the expression of the gene PRX1, which controls the growth of forelimbs. They spliced this regulatory sequence from the bat into the mouse, and measured the effects. Myers warned us that we werent going to see images of mice with bat wings, and not to be disappointed. I was, a little. Instead, the mice grew longer forelimbs. Nothing like a bats, but still longer. They also deleted this sequence in the mice and measured the result, and found that there was little to no effect, which suggests a fair amount of redundancy in the regulatory genes that mediate such kind of growth ...
Some fresh water lobe-finned மீன் (Sarcopterygii) develop legs and give rise to the நாற்காலி (உயிரியல்).. The first tetrapods evolved in shallow and swampy நன்னீர் habitats.. Primitive tetrapods developed from a lobe-finned fish (an osteolepid Sarcopterygian), with a two-lobed மனித மூளை in a flattened skull, a wide mouth and a short snout, whose upward-facing eyes show that it was a bottom-dweller, and which had already developed adaptations of fins with fleshy bases and எலும்புs. The living fossil coelacanth is a related lobe-finned fish without these shallow-water adaptations. These fishes used their fins as paddles in shallow-water habitats choked with plants and detritus. The universal tetrapod characteristics of front limbs that bend backward at the elbow and hind limbs that bend forward at the knee can plausibly be traced to early tetrapods living in shallow water.[6]. Panderichthys is a 90-130 cm ...
Though the fossil remains of Therizinosaurus are incomplete, inferences can be made about their physical characteristics based on related therizinosaurids. Like other members of their family, Therizinosaurus probably had small skulls atop long necks, with bipedal gaits and heavy, deep, broad bodies (as evidenced by the wide pelvis of other therizinosaurids). Their forelimbs may have reached lengths of up to 2.5 metres (8.2 feet)[1] or even 3.5 metres (11.5 feet) in the largest known specimen.[2] Their hindlimbs ended in four weight-bearing toes, unlike other theropod groups, in which the first toe was reduced to a dewclaw. In 2010 Gregory S. Paul estimated the maximum size of Therizinosaurus at 10 metres (33 ft) in length and five tonnes in weight.[2] They are the largest therizinosaurs known, and the largest known maniraptorans.[2] The most distinctive feature of Therizinosaurus was the presence of gigantic claws on each of the three digits of their front limbs. These were common among ...
A family of gigantic pterosaurs, have soared into the grounds of West Midland Safari Park and made it their new home, just in time for half term.. With a wingspan averaging around 11 metres, quetzalcoatlus was the largest animal to have ever taken to the skies. It was so tall, it could have looked a giraffe in the eye and had the ability to walk on all fours, using its gigantic folded wings as front limbs.. Scientists have debated how a creature as large as a private plane, could have ever flown. It was believed that they had hollow, lightweight bones and powerful forelimbs which helped them to catapult themselves into the air. Once airborne, they would use their large wings to soar, using air thermals to keep them aloft.. Head Dinosaur Keeper, Emily Brooks said, The addition of a group of new pterosaurs to our large group of dinosaurs is very exciting but is going to have its challenges! We are working very hard to build a comfortable home for our new residents, but quetzalcoatlus are three ...

The Sungazer derives its name from its habit of anterior body-up posturing, and thus raised on its forelimbs, gives the impression that it is gazing at the sun when outside of its burrow. The Afrikaans name Ouvolk means old person, and has most probably been used because this lizard spends considerable sitting outside its burrow in an inactive state, either thermoregulating, or waiting for passing prey. Sungazers inhabit loamy grassland and live in, often winding, self-made burrows, which may be up to nearly 4 m in length. The orientation of most burrow openings is east through to north-west. One to two young are usually born every second year and are much brighter than the adults with bright yellow and orange markings. Agriculture and development are major threats to this species. ...
