Although the skull has no face, it does have a partial nasal preserved. The
dorsal surface of this bone is somewhat roughened, so Goodwin suggested at SVP
last year that there was possibly a seperate ossified Epinasal (read: nose
horn) that had not yet been ossified to the rest of the face.
Again, the skull is very cute and I am assuming the same one that Goodwin had
presented at SVP last year.
