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.
