Re: Tianyu Museum of Nature's "world record" dinosaur collection
Well, I was there in May. Xu Xing is helping them with getting rid of ,
well, let's say "the specimens in which the preparators overdid a bit". A
huge job to do. The specimens mentioned make up only for a comparatively
small part of the entire collection.
However, there are quite a few weird specimens left. IIRC Xu said he's very
much concentrating on the dinosaur specimens. I saw only a few "weirdos" in
the two halls in which those are on display.
Anyway, it's a great place to be. I whished I had more time to spent there
than the two days that I had.
My personal impression was "overwhelming" still doesnt describe it

The story reports 391 dromaeosaur skeletons and 255 Anchiornis skeletons
in the Tianyu Museum, all almost complete. I had no idea so many existed!
Has anyone on the list seen this stuff yet? Has it all been authenticated?
