I would like to read your scientific findings on this, where
may I find your paper?
I'm going with HP Tracy Ford on this one. Crocs skulls show
the same kind of holes for blood vessels.

no lips, that is 100 percent correct. No lips what so ever, read my paper.

nose I don’t believe for a minute. I’ll have to read the article, but I don’t
buy it for a minute. Why in the world would an animal evolve with it’s nose on
top of its head if >its nostrils were still at the
the skull’s noise is way to big and the ears are in the wrong place (yea, I
know, nick picking). Are they using animals close to dinosaurs?

No lips?!?!?!? Or even a fleshy covering!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Just
because lizards have lips
and crocodiles don't doesn't mean dinosaurs did not have lips!!! It seems that
dinosaurs have small
holes in the bottom and outside surfaces of their maxillary bones and
pre-maxillary bones as well as the
tops and outside surfaces of their lower jaw and that these holes had blood
vessels running through them. If there were blood vessels running through
these holes, then there would be some kind of fleshy covering over the teeth!
If there weren't any there would not be any lips instead it would be like any
other piece of skin on the head and have blood vessels from the rest of
the head running through it!! Dinosaurs HAD
