  Or maybe the scar was Stego inflicted.

How about Larson/Larson? Between Pete and Neal, they should be able to
correct all the boo-boos in the first two films. At the same time you'd
get a REAL story line. Maybe we'll get to see more of the baby rex also.
Another four years should get it grown enough to participate in the
family group. At least it had its first taste of human-burger. Hope that
expensive suit didn't give it indigestion ;-} 
BTW, on the SCI-FI Channel this evening they had a Making Of - show
where Speilberg said they put the Stegos in because of popular demand.
Anything else worthy of nomination?
