Re: PALEONEWS:China to Build First Dinosaur Park in Yunnan

Dr. Thomas R. Holtz, Jr. first quoted the subject article mentioned:
>"It is rare that the two kinds of dinosaurs died together," said Pan
> Shigang, an official with the Lufeng Dinosaur Museum.

    To which Holtz responded:

Rare, yes, but not unheard of.  Witness, for example, the Felch Quarry 1 in
the Morrison of Garden Park, Colorado: within a few meters of each other
have been found excellent skeletons of _Ceratosaurus_, _Allosaurus_,
_Diplodocus_, _Stegosaurus_, and more fragmentary remains of other dinosaus.

    To which we might add that old standby, the Oviraptor and Protoceratops
buried together in a final battle (by a sandstorm(?) .
