Comparitive Muscle Attachments by jconway Comparitive Muscle Attachments by jconway
The comparative forelimb muscle attachment sites of a crocodylian, Anhanguara, and a bird. This drawing formed the basis for my muscle reconstructions of Anhanguara, which I presented at the Flugsaurier conference in Munich last year.

This is fascinating.
The anhanguera radius seems to have more in common with the crocodilian than the corvid, is this even close to being a valid observation?
I do find anatomy most interesting.

Yes, I think overall pterosaur musculature id more croc- than bird-like.

Which I gues would make sense, when looking at the evolutionary timescale. Corvids are a much more recent creature than crocodiles, and anhanguera.

very interesting! It would be cooler if you had added a human for reference, since I don't know most of the muscles.
