Sorry - hit "Enter" accidentally...
CHICAGO (Reuters) - Scientists reported on Thursday they had found
the first evidence of a brain tumor in a dinosaur, in the fossilized
remains of a creature that lived 72 million years ago in present-day
"Although we haven't conclusively identified the type of brain tumor
found in this specimen, we are sure the tumor impaired the mobility
of the dinosaur," said Rachel Reams, a veterinary pathologist at Eli
Lilly and Co. who participated in the research.
"It almost certainly affected its balance and locomotor function,"
The announcement was made in Indianapolis by the Children's Museum of
Indianapolis and the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research.
