the fuzzy psittacosaur and the Dinosaur Mailing List on Science's online site



For those with access to the ScienceNOW site (part of Science Magazine's
online presence), a short report (detailing nothing new about the specimen
from what was discussed on the list: sorry) can be found here:
http://sciencenow.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/2001/828/2

The article begins "A dinosaur with a strange, bristly tail set
paleontologists abuzz last week after grainy photographs of the fossilized
creature began crisscrossing the Internet""  and includes the following:
"Speculation began around 20 August, when Michael Schmidt, a fossil dealer
in Edmonton, Alberta, forwarded color photos of the specimen to some members
of the DINOSAUR Internet mailing list."

Also included is a link to the DML archives.
