Currie (2000) reports that claims of procoelous cervical vertebrae in
Shanshanosaurus are incorrect and re-examination of the specimen (Currie and
Dong, in prep.) suggests it may be a juvenile Tyrannosaurus bataar.  With
North American aublysodonts turning out to be juvenile tyrannosaurids, it
seems very likely.  Now just to figure out what is up with Alectrosaurus....
