site that has the computer simulation of the sounds of this

extremely well-preserved crest, that was discovered in 
northwest New Mexico in August 1995. This New Mexico 
fossil is one of the most complete ever found (only five 
complete or partial skulls have been reported for 
Parasaurolophus) and the first nearly complete skull to be 
found in more than 70 years.

CARNEGIE HAS A NEW T-REX

The Carnegie Museum now has a new Tyrannosaurus rex on 
display which can be viewed online. This replica, one of the 
most complete skeletons ever found, is mounted in an 
untraditional horizontal pose. Unlike the Museum's other rex 
specimen, which looms upright over Dinosaur Hall, this one 
is structured in a more life-like position, as if confronting 
prey.
