Hi there fellow list members.  Just thought I'd post a bit of information I've come across recently that most people may not be aware of.
There are also several new findings announced in the recently published Dinosaurs of New Mexico that should interest some readers.
The supposed squamosal of Zuniceratops is actually a therizinosauroid ischium.  More of the specmen is known and is currently under preparation and description.
    Dear Mickey and list,
    You're not kidding about more of Zuniceratops being prepped. I've just completed an 18 inch zuni sculpture  for the Discovery Channel's " When dinosaurs roamed America" project, under the direct supervision of Jim Kirkland. ( Luckily, he lives in the next county.) I had access to all the material in the N.M. article.
    I was also able to see new limb and frill material at last month's Utah friends of paleontology meeting. Scott Samson said it was the most bizarre looking ceratopsian he's ever seen. The final piece looks like an emaciated Diceratops crossed with a Montanaceratops, sans the deep tail. I have been told that the studio is building a web site for viewing the different sculptures done by the various artists. When I can, I will give out the email address to the list.
