skeleton: someone has a picture of the pelvic girdle of this specimen?>

  The skull of "Khaan" featured in _National Geographic Magazine_ 190
[Webster, 1996: Dinosaurs of the Gobi, pg. 70-89] is referred to by
Norell, Gaffney, & Dingus, 1995, as an isolated skull. Whether this is
true or not, I am not sure, but Dashzeveg et al., 1994, in _Nature_, say
the same thing in their third figure, which indicates this "long and low"

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
