With regards to the new Burpee Museum "Nanotyrannus":
It is *reported* to have fused neurocentral sutures. However, as the
reports of the fused cranial sutures of the type of Nanotyrannus are (shall
we say) exaggerated, I will wait until the specimen is prepared before
rending any professional judgement.
Same goes for the U Chicago specimen that has been mentioned briefly. I am
not at all adverse to the idea of a second, smaller tyrannosaurine in the
Hell Creek: I am simply not convinced that any of the specimens claimed so
far to be one are anything other than young T. rex.
