Re: Opinions on Tyrannosaur Skull Replica

Larry, etc.:

    It seems to be a replica of the AMNH skull (We have a copy of that _T.
rex_ here in Phila., and I've spent many hours close to it).   This replica
seems to be a bit shorter proportionally, yet still retains most of the
features.  I think that the nerve holes on the lower jaw (I'm not sure
that's all they're for) are too widely spaced, and I don't recall the lower
row.  Also, the teeth are too good (i.e. apparently too symmetric for my
taste and/or recollection).

    Hope this helps,

            Allan Edels
