I was reading Chapter 28 from _The Complete Dinosaur_, entitled _What Did
Dinosaurs Eat? Coprolites and Other Direct Evidence of Dinosaur Diets_,
and thinking of stomach contents not mentioned in this chapter by Karen
Chin, which I otherwise enjoyed very much. But as I cannot find sources, I
am posting questions to the list.
I recall reading that _Herrerasaurus_ was found in association with
dicynodont remains. Were the remains in the stomach? What was found?
I also understand that fish scales were found within the gut of a specimen
of _Baryonyx_. Any further details?
Now onto data beyond the ken of Karen Chin at the time of her writing:
_Sinosauropteryx_. The semi-articulated lizard remains present in one of
the specimens is shown in the recent _Nature_ article. Would anyone hazard
a guess as to what we are looking at? It's remarkably well-preserved, I
know, but I don't know what to make of it. There is also mention in the
magazine of the third _Sinosauropteryx_ and its containing the remains of a
tiny mammal. Can anyone provide more information on this little critter
References and/or hearsay gratefully accepted.
