Re: so, would it be surprising, or not, to find an almost identical specimen of a dino (say, allosaurus)....



Yes, very true.  Perhaps the experts were misquoted in the news story,
or that they were not referring to the specific species of Pelagornis cilenisis,
but to the genus.  50 million years!  Even Dick Clark didn't last that long.

..... There's also the fact that all we generally have
are the bones and these aren't the whole animal: soft tissue,
physiology and behavior can change without outwardly affecting bone
morphology.
