   1)  There is no such thing as Gigantosaur.  There is Gigantosaurus and
Giganotosaurus.  The first is the junior synonym of an african sauropod, the
latter is a very large, T. rex sized, south american allosaurid.  Look
closely at the spellings, they *are* different names.

   2)  Undoubtedly the arms you saw probably belonged to Deinocheirus, a
mongolian ornithomimid which, to my knowledge is known solely by those
forelimbs.
