Mummified dinosaur may have outrun T Rex


One of the most complete dinosaur
mummies ever found is revealing
secrets locked away for millions of
years, bringing researchers as close
as they will ever get to touching a
live dino.

The fossilized duckbilled hadrosaur is
so well preserved that scientists have been
able to calculate its muscle mass and learn
that it was more muscular than thought,
probably giving it the ability to outrun
predators such as T. rex.

Alright Lads if you would please
turn to page 147 of Dr Grordbort's guide to all things saurian. Make
the appropriate changes.

***Remember to change your weapons setting accordingly!

This might account for the dissappearance of 'Strangely' Browne, who always did underestimate the speed of some of these beasties...

Settings recalibrated, good call Bill!

***From the report:

"Oh, the skin is wonderful," paleontologist Phillip Manning of Manchester University in England rhapsodized, admitting to a "glazed look in my eye."

"It's unbelievable when you look at it for the first time," he said in a telephone interview. "There is depth and structure to the skin. The level of detail expressed in the skin is just breathtaking."

Manning said there is a pattern of banding to the larger and smaller scales on the skin. Because it has been fossilized researchers do not know the skin color. Looking at it in monochrome shows a striped pattern.

He notes that in modern reptiles, such a pattern is often associated with color change.

***My word, that beasties "pelt"
will make for a rather fetching
display on the loge wall, what...
