    But can they point their toes??

    Bah- you're believe the politiking put out by it's federation. There is no evidence that any of the venom spitting nonsense in Jurassic Park was true.

    Do you know if the self-reported height of the raptors on their ISU bios is accurate, or do they tend to overstate their stature?

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Velociraptors would have a distinct advantage since they would be born with blades on their feet.

    They probably give their height with their skates on...

    Homo sapiens have only been around for thousands of years; they haven't had the training time.

    Also, homo sapiens very bad at politiking. No one can possibly vote for someone without a strong federation, there is no 'quid pro quo' Also Nan it isn't necessary to be able to point toes or have good lines

    Do the species' respective federations have their own championships? Between the noise, six-hour long zamboni breaks, and staggering depth of the field, Tyrannosaurus "Nats" would be brutal.

    Also, I'm assuming that withdrawals due to having been killed and eaten during the warmup would be fairly common occurrences.

    Absolutely not. Skating is a very refined sport, they only eat their young

    The most upsetting thing is that the T-Rex dominated the meat eating judging bloc.

    Apatosaurus wuz robbed.

    The Allosaurus who defied fellow bloc judges and gave the 1976 East Laurasian title to the balletically gifted archaeopteryx has my undying respect (to say nothing of sympathy ).

    With the proper training Wilma Flintstone or Betty Rubble could have been top contenders, being human they had the correct body tyoe and could fit into a pair of skates. Although it would depend on what species the judges were as to whether their programs would be considered aesthetically appealing.

    Wilma could borrow Barney's club if the judging did not go her way, a whack or two and they may see things her way.

    T-rex. Strong willed and confident. Mentally strong. Strives for the top, sometimes heavy on the landing of certain jumps. May not be as artistic, but certainly puts his all into every element.

    Did I mention he has a quad?
