Re: Big Momma dimensions

I'm not sure which specimen you are referring to, but I suspect it is
specimen IGM 100/979 (Norell et al., 1995, Nature). In the photo of the
specimen (p. 775), there is a 10 cm scale bar. The greatest breadth of
the plastered specimen is about 84 cm (+/- a cm or so). The greatest
top-to-bottom dimension is about 78 cm (+/- a cm or so). These
dimensions include the plaster jacket.
