Deinonychus - Naturalhistory Museum Vienna

Last Friday I visited the Natural History Muesum in Vienna to see their Dinosaurs (I went there a few times before but only with my school and never got to see them) and my first impression was not to good after seeing the animatronic Allosaurus with heavy pronation and children jumping in front of it. Than I saw their Deinonychus.

While the armfeathers are a bit weird in comparison to the tail feathers which are really nice big single feathers and the face and legs could have a few more centimeters of fluff everthing else is done nicely. Round pupils, no pronation, feathers attached to second finger and beeing placed in a exhibition called “Why we feed Dinosaurs in Winter” together with Archaeopteryx and some little birds to explain dinosaur evolution and state that birds are dinosaurs.

If they could fix its arm feathers it would be nearly perfect.
Anyway I would totaly count it as an Paleowin since many persons were blown away by the fact that birds are dinosaurs when they saw it and now I can saw “go to the muesum” when someone disbelieves me!

Im sorry for spelling and grammar mistakes english is my second language (anway my spelling in german is even worse but come on it´s a hard language)
