Re: Upright fossilisation posture
That also reminds me of a new _Chasmosaurus_ sp. specimen that Dr. Robert
Holmes will be describing shortly. As I understand it, it too was preserved
in an upright position, and may even reveal some clues as to the posture of
the ceratopian forelimb. I saw the specimen myself in collection last year,
although much of it is still burried in the matrix.
I await anxiously with the rest of you...

a strange find has been made by the Sino-American crew in inner Mongolia
and I just wanted to know if something similar had been reported before:
some theropods( ornithomimids) have been found in an upright posture "as if
they were crouching[when died]".
I remember reading about some quite similar findings (ankilosaurs and
sauropods[?]), but nothing theropodan.
They think they've found a therizinosaur too...cool!
