I once suggested onlist that
someone relocate the AMNH 5895 quarry to find out.
That seems like unnecessary work: It's very difficult to relocate an entire
quarry. Let's leave it where it is for now.
"Dynamosaurus imperiosus" (aka Tyrannosaurus rex) are now illustrated (Fig.
20), and identified as those of Ankylosaurus magniventris
Could they be stomach contents?
I wondered that too (and I remembered an old Far Side cartoon describing
ankylosaurs as roughage). I might be wrong, but I think the dermal plates
were associated with the ribs of _Dynamosaurus_. However, the
_Dynamosaurus_ specimen is very incomplete and disarticulated, and was found
jumbled in the matrix with ceratopsian and hadrosaur material as well.
