Dinosaur news (including REAL dinosaur in French church)
From: Ben Creisler
In case these recent news stories have not been mentioned
Non-technical review of Australian dinosaurs in
Australian Geographic magazine:
Dinosaur in church (for real!)
With all the media blather about a supposed dinosaur
skull in an Italian church, howabout a genuine dinosaur
in a (former) French church? This news item in French
announces that that most complete skeleton of an
Allosaurus ever found will be on display in a former
Jesuit church in Porrentroy in the Jura region of France.
The Allosaurus (Big Al 2) was dug up by a team from the
Sauriermuseum in Aathal, Switzerland
(http://www.sauriermuseum.ch/) in 1996. Trackways in the
Jura region suggest that Allosaurus or a close relative
roamed the region during the Jurassic.
It's not completely clear to me if the skeleton on
display is a cast or the real bones, though.
