RE: Dakota the Dinosaur Mummy



Speed is not based on muscle mass. An elephant has great muscle mass
than an ostrich, but cannot out run one (same with the cheetah vs lion)

Strange that this story should appear first in the UAE  papers:

"Dinosaur mymmy (sic) had scales, can outrun T. rex
(AP)   2 December 2007"
"WASHINGTON - One of the most complete dinosaur mummies ever  found is 
revealing secrets locked away for millions of years, bringing
researchers as close 
as they will ever get to touching a live dinosaur."

"The fossilized duckbilled hadrosaur is so well preserved that
scientists 
have been able to calculate its muscle mass and learn that it was  more
muscular 
than thought, probably giving it the ability to outrun predators  such
as a 
tyrannosaurus rex."
