Re: Ichthyosaurus fossilised in mid-birth ??
Before the DML gets caught up in speculating about the research, it isn't
anecdotal and I was off to bed before I emended my last post with this data.

dunes. _Journal of Geology_ 107:707-713.

Dr. Loope is a specialist in dunes and eolian regions of the Earth, so his
work with geologist Dr. Dingus makes sense on the study of the "sandslides"
from Mongolia that appear to result in the vertically-buried *Protoceratops*,
Fighting Dinosaurs *Protoceratops* and *Velociraptor* (the infamous dinosaur I
mentioned in my last post), and ankylosaur juveniles "huddling from the storm".
