Re: Layperson

In answer to Jonathan Woolf's question, I believe the Beast of Baluchistan is
now called Paraceratherium.
What the heck, I'll relay a bit of gossip I received a while back from a very
unreliable source. It was told to me that _Manospondylus_ of Cope (a cervical
vertebra) was diagnostic and had priority over Tyrannosaurus. I was also told
that it was part of the Cope collection purchased by the American Museum
after Cope's death and the specimen was "disappeared" the better part of a
century ago. Talk about sinister. Anyone heard this bit of dinofolklore?
