New Carcharodontosaurine Maxilla



I found a picture of the maxilla of Currie and Coria's new carcharodontosaurine at:
http://www.tyrrellmuseum.com/expeditions/argentina2000/february16h.jpg
Notice that the dorsal and ventral borders kinda blend into eachother posteriorly as in Carcharodontosaurus saharicus, while in Giganotosaurus they are subparallel in this region. There appears to be a small triangular maxillary fenestra there too. Maybe this new animal is a closer relative to the african theropod? Be sure to browse around that site, there are pics of various other elements (including a comparison of tibiae from the new carch with G. carolinii).
