It is not a Rhabdodon, the specimens of Romania are considered a separate genus, named Zalmoxes (fragmentary remains of a small rhabdodontid found in Austria have been attributed to Zalmoxes, but it is certainly a mistake because these remains are at least ten millions years older than the romanian specimens).


In fact the geographical distribution of Rhabdodon is strictly limited to the south of France and Spain. These two countries formed the Ibero-Occitan Island (or Ibero-Armorican Island), which was larger than the Romanian Hateg Island. This may explain the fact that the rhabdodontids of France and Spain are larger (5 to 7 meters long) than those of Romania (3 to 4 meters long).


Apart from that, this is an interesting reconstruction of a rhabdodontid. But little is known about the exact length of the tail, it was perhaps shorter.


The details of the feathers of Balaur are magnificent.
