Re: Sinornithomimus Stuck In The Mud

From the article: "Judging from the animals present at the site and their ages, as determined by carbon dating, the herd was probably made up of one- to seven-year-olds, said David Varricchio, a Montana State University paleontologist."

I'm willing to guess that David did NOT claim that they assessed ontogenetic stage from carbon dating...

Or even absolute geological age.  Just saying!
