I remember Bakker stating that the CAT scans showed that all the cranial bones
were fused indicating an adult. Is this actually the case in that they AREN'T
fused or does it not necessarily mean what he said it meant? Ot could it be an
adolescent (Teen Rex?) as opposed to a juvenile? As an adolescent, it would be
too small to be a T. rex, but maybe something else?
