Juvenile Allosaurus skeleton "Little Al" found in Wyoming to go
display at the Urwelt-Museum  in Bayreuth, Germany; skeleton is about
30 to 40 percent original fossil material, 2.85 meters long from the
skull to the tail tip, but only 1.20 meters high. This a privately
owned specimen on loan to the museum and will then travel to a  museum
in Altmühltal. (The specimen failed to sell at auction last year so it
should be OK to mention it on the DML now.)
