Majungasaurus has a head

        Just saw a nice lateral view photo of the new Majungasaurus skull
(In the Field, July-August 1997, 68 [4], p. 6).  The skull bears an overall
similarity to Carnotaurus (short face, orbital horns, expanded braincase 
crest, slender dentary).  The postorbital seems more similar to Abelisaurus.
In addition, the nasals are highly rugose, and appear to bear a crest.
