Very interesting, thank you for the link. I am wondering though. I know
the debate of T.rex verses Giganotosaurus has been long and hard, and now
with this discovery, a new contender has entered the ring. What of Dr.
Keith Rigby's giant Tyranosaurus rex/imperator? The only documentation I
have seen was in an issue of Prehistoric Times issue #30, describing a pebis
of 133 cm, 15 cm longer than Giganotosaurus.
Am I just a victom of falsified material, or is T.rex still "King of the
Hill"? (pending the outcome of the new material Mary supplied)
