I have heard some 3 years ago that a bonebed in Texas near the Oklahoma
border had a great dinosaur dig site for Acrocanthosaurus, the site was or
still is being worked (without much care).  The formation is Antler I
think.  Apparently 2 beautiful skulls where uncovered and ruined.  I hope
this is not true.
