In Japanese

Ceratopsian tooth identified in Japan. The Early Cretaceous tooth was
found in 1991 in Kitakyushu region and was thought to be from an
ornithopod. However, a new paper (I think in the journal
Paleontological Research, not available yet online) identifies the
tooth as ceratopsian. The tooth is now on display.

The ornithomimosaur was 4 meters long and is based on remains of 27
individuals. Vertebrae from  a number of different individuals are
laid out side by side around a table in the video, starting with the
neck. Some of the tail vertebrae still need to be sorted out.
