There is now an incredible amount of Late Cretaceous material comeing out of 
Mexico. Near the New Mexico, Texas and Mexico border, Late Cretaceous 
formations have hadrosaurs (some with skin impressions), theropods, ornith
opods, etc. Also, a kritosaur was found and mounted in a Museum by Rene 
Hernandze. There is also ?Lambeosaurus laticatlus (sic), the tyrannosaur 
Labocania (Ralph Molnar comfermed his belief on this identification). There 
is also another dinosaur, that I'm currently working on with Jim Kirkland 
that...well, you'll just have to wait for Dinofest 1998 for that one.
