Subject: RE: GIANT CERATOPSIANS AND R.O.U.S. (or whatever)
1) Nick Longrich wrote something about "giant megalosaurs"...
What where how why when? I need details man!
For the moment I will ignore the fact that no one has
done any work defining the taxon anyway (except for the Paul and
Bakker taxa, whihch are apparently both para/polyphyletic).
2) I am surprised that no one has brought up the "gigantic"
ceratopsian skull in the BYU basement. Last I heard, it was
really really big (eight feet maybe? Don't hold me to that, I
can't remember). It is usually called a "Triceratops" skull,
which may mean it is a short-frill, in which case we are talking
about a big critter indeed!
3) As for large duckbills, the tracks on display at AMNH are
positively huge themselves.
