_Coelophysis_bauri_ AMNH 7223
collected by C. Sorensen and G. Whitaker 1948 Ghost Ranch, New Mexico
cannibal: juvenile bones inside lower (in the museum display) adult rib
associated with masses of _Syntarsus_
first discovered by George Witaker and Edwin Colbert Ghost Ranch
At least that's what my notebook has. But I seem to remember it written
7223/7224 somewhere. Think Museum has other specimens.
Always had a soft spot for the American Museum of Natural History.
on earth can you find such a great everywhere and what on earth IMO.
Any challenges? It would help planning future vactions.
apropos "Padian's Feathers... and the amateur vs." discussion: loner
in 188? found bone pieces which he got to Cope who named the
h(a)ollowed ;-) one.
Baldwin's field notebooks a half century later led to the Ghost Ranch
And this specimen.
That's how it should work. It's hard work to take notes and work
(... still a strong believer in private property.)
