Ye Olde Duckbill Dinosaur
When I was a kid sneaking down to downtown New Haven to visit the Peabody
Museum (which was free then....) I was very familiar with the then current
restoration of the duckbill dinosaur 'Trachodon [spelling?]' as having a
wide duck-like bill and swimming in water. Now that I've gotten back to
dinosaurs I know that that restoration is changed, in fact even that diorama
at the Peabody has been removed. I assume Trachodon is an invalid name now.
Since I've missed the changes due to new information, what happened to
Trachodon and his wide flat bill?
