Re: Nanotyrannus (?) fighting ceratopsian specimens videos

I must caution that Peter L has data that seriously contradicts the 
nanotyrannos being juveniles of Tyrannosaurus that I will not discuss because 
it is 
not my business to do so. Same for the ceratopsid. Best to wait and see how 
things pan out.

reliable, and "Nanotyrannus" is a nomen dubium. Larson's argument is

that he's found another small tyrannosaurid, and because it is small,

it must be "Nanotyrannus."  >>
