It has not "turned out" that B. walkeri is a juvenile: there is a difference
of opinion, which is hardly settled. Lack of fusion between some skull
bones and some vertebrae suggest it was a subadult; fusion of the sternal
plates together, however, suggest it may have been adult. Difficult to say
>2) What is known from the African "Baryonyx sp"?
Wait a month or so, and you'll know a LOT more about it.
Trust me on this... :-)
