Re: Phil Currie and Burroughs?
It was also most inspiring to see a picture of a
Triceratops biting a rhinoceros in half while T.
remarks "I wondered what they ate".
How about a field trip to Pal-Ul-Don? Or a type
specimen of Tharkus barsoomensis? Laugh if you want,
but I suspect that images like that have helped fund
and populate a lot of digs.
