        Gee, "Trachodonts!"  There's a term I haven't seen used in about a
zillion years!  How quaint!  8-)

        Anyway,. in addition to all this, there is a fairly good (I hear)
nodosaur skeleton that was recovered from some marine formation in southern
CA (around San Diego, if memory serves).  I think Walter Coombs is in on
studying it.
