Interesting articles that I still need to read.

I asked Paul late last year about the "70%" complete spinosaur that he
found, and he said he had no idea what I was talking about. The only
'gavial-headed' spinosaur materal that I know of what Milner (I think
that's how gave the talk at the SVP at the AMNH) is at the Britsh Museum
of Natural History. I think he was talking about the elognated front end
of the skull. I'm sure Darren has seen the material first hand, but
can't really say much due to professional curtsy.
