Somebody mentioned Albertosaur skin and I recall hearing that,
too, it was found before the T. rex skin. I've heard the T. rex
stuff is supposed to be sort of smooth and elephantine, but that's all I
know. If it were just Carnotaurus, and not any tetanurans, I wouldn't be
worried, but T. rex is pretty birdy in a lot of respects.
