Did I miss something? Where did this cannibalism thread come from? I
wasn't aware that there was any evidence of cannibalism in any dinosaur,
let alone coelophysis. Does this have anything to do with the mass
coelophysis burial site out west (I forget the name of the site)?
I think that the reference is to a specimen held in the Royal
Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, Alberta that contains the ossified
remains of the last meal in the gut area. The bones have been
suggested to be the remains of a juvenile *Coelophysis*. Most recent
childrens books seem to illustrate this animal as evidence of
cannibalism in dinosaurs. See David Lamberts book called _The
Ultimate Dinosaur Book_ 1993.
