Re: Paranychodon questions
Sam Girouard <firstname.lastname@example.org> asked:
>9. Does anyone know of any isolated theropod teeth occurring in marine
In addition to Horner's (1979) census of the Dinosauria from the marine
Bearpaw Shale (that I earlier posted on), I just noticed
this item from Weishampel et al's (1990) _The Dinosauria_
>From page 116:
"Montana, United States
Eagle Sandstone (Marsh 1890b)
The Eagle Sandstone is a Campanian-age marine beach facies and
marine offshore dune facies formation. Unfortunately, the
authors don't go into any detail on exactly what the
tyrannosaur element(s) is/are.
Also listed as occuring in this marine formation is a taxon
called "Ornithomimus" grandis. No teeth there!
By the way, the Eagle Sandstone is a beautiful formation to
view from a distance. It is a cliff-former, and
makes very picturesque scenery. The cliffs overlooking
the town of Billings, MT. are part of the Eagle Sandstone.
