:PsYKoTiC:BeHAvIoR:

I wonder if it is determined whether the skin is reptilian in nature or not? The article didn't specify.

Very interesting article you got there. Would be nice if there were a few pictures, but I can visualize it a bit.

Pretty neat!

A cube of sandstone was split to show this skin.

We later took a chisel to expose even more.

The whole dino is probably still there on the river bank.
