FW: Baja dinosaurs anyone?



I recommend _Dinosaurs and Other Mesozoic Reptiles of California_, by
Richard P. Hilton, illustrated by Ken Kirkland, University of California
Press, Berkeley, CA, 2003, 356 pp., $39.95 hardcover, which covers Baja
California as well as California specimens.  

An appendix lists all known specimens of Mesozoic reptiles from California
and Baja California. A valuable table includes identifications, repositories
and specimen numbers, skeletal elements, geologic ages and formations, names
and dates of finders, and general locations.   See the following web sites
