I am finally back at the computer. Just to round off Segnosaurus though. There are a large number of popular outlets that claim Segnosaurus including books, animatronic and static displays, and video games. These are all interpretations of the dinosaur, of course, so they should be appreciated for their interpretative qualities and interesting manifestations. Also, in video game environments, for instance, there should be a recognition that the models are often hand-crafted by gamers, and therefore have no budget behind them. Far too many people complain about the accuracy of detail in video game models, I probably have in the past as well, but it is not worth the time or effort to do so honestly. The model used for Dinosaur King, as an example, is budgeted and therefore rather "acceptable" by most standards, even if it is an updated Therizinosaurus.
