     I thought that there was Albertoaurus and Tarbosaurus juvinile 
material.  The Tarbosaurus juvinile may have turned out to be 
Maleevosaurus, but I thought I overheard Phil Currie talking about 
known juvinile Albertosaurus material and how the long legs were probably 
for outrunning adults.  I beleive he was suggesting this as possible 
evidende for tyrannosaur predation.  Also, Norman's Encyclopodia of 
dinosaurs has a juvinile reconstruction with super long legs.
