Published This Day: Velociraptor

Art © Frank Cho. The rest of the drawing (& poor Shanna!) is HERE.

On this day in 1924 Henry Osborn published the first description of Velociraptor;
H.F. Osborn. 1924. Three new Theropoda, Protoceratops zone, central Mongolia. American Museum Novitates 144: 1-12.
I'll try to dig out some photos of some of the specimens on display in Mongolia and post them tomorrow.
