RE: Josh Smith et al in Egypt


The plates in question show the display of _Spinosaurus_ in the Munich
Museum in Germany.  Stromer had mounted several of the vertebrae (some
of them with their spines).  They are from the 1920's or 1930's (prior
to the museum's destruction in 1944[?]).  Josh has slides of the plates
(I think there are 4 or 5 plates).  I checked in the new book (The Lost
Dinosaurs of Egypt") but I didn't see a copy of them there.  

I have seen the slides before, at a few of Josh's talks (both before and
after the announcement of _Paralititan_).  Josh had honed his talks with
several groups that I am involved with, including the Delaware Valley
Paleontological Society [DVPS]. :-)

BTW: It's neat looking at the book, and realizing that I am at least
somewhat friendly with 80+% of the American team, as well as several
people mentioned in the acknowledgements.

Does anyone have any photos of this mount mentioned, as I have been out
town, and unable to watch the show yet. Thanks in advance.

> The book is really good. Already read the sucker before the show. And
for the show, I seriously enjoyed it. I don't know about any of you, but
seeing the photo plate with the mounted Spinosaurus sent chills down my
spine. Fantastic.... yet tragic all at the same time. Drama rulz. The
is for sale on DVD and on VHS.
