RE: dinosaur beaks and ora speeds



Tim Williams wrote "IMHO, _Alioramus_, Carcharodontosaurus_, _Majungatholus_
and other non-maniraptorans, by contrast, were not "beaked", but
nevertheless had a cornified zone expressed on the dorsal rostrum (perhaps
continuous with any pre- or postorbital ornamentation)"

So, we're talking about a possible horny covering across the nasals, but
nothing on the premax.?
