Re: Dinosaur Planet: Updated Website

1. Troodon formosus is really cute in their restoration, but I doubt it stood 
as tall as a man.
2. It seems like the tail aught to be longer in Alvarezsaurus, than restored 
here, considering the new specimens of Shuvuuia.
3. Aucasaurus was described in 2002, not 1999. CMIIW
4. It's not a member of the Abelisaur genus. *urgh*
5. The page on Carcharodontosaurus says it is known from Egypt, Morocco, 
Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, and Niger. Last I checked, none of those are in the

in China. I don't think they conveyed that very well into the restoration.
