RE: met Novacek- oviraptor questions(mostly)

someone asked afterwards how many types of theropods they had found and
Mike said 15. I don't know if he meant species or specimens.
He said they had identified 2 seperate species of oviraptoroids,
Oviraptor and a smaller morph (in the picture crestless and
'tooth-thingie'-less but still beaked)
I don't remember what he called the ankylosaurid-they were road-kill
displayed and he said they took a day to dig out a 17 footer. Will that
size and the 4-spike tail club help identify it better?
He also said there were footprints recoverred of a dinosaur walking
across the base of a sand dune, but didn't say what kind.......
And during the question-and-answer after the slideshow he was QUITE
reluctant to speculate on the possiblities of feathered dinosaurs that a
couple of people (not me) posed to him, though he acknowledged seeing
Phil Currie's photgragh of Sinoseropteryx (did I get that right?)
(I also met Ron Cobb and his wife at the show, so that was cool, too!)
