Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 21, 2020

About 67 million years ago, two iconic dinosaurs, a Triceratops horridus and a Tyrannosaurus rex, died and were quickly buried together side by side in a single grave. And both of them bear battle scars. It's the kind of showdown scientists have speculated about for years, but it has only ever appeared in "Jurassic Park" games -- until now. The impressively complete skeletons of these "dueling dinosaurs" will go on display and be studied at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in 2022, the museum announced Tuesday.

Fascinating discovery. The pictures in the article are impressive. They're described as the most 'articulated' (bones intact and in order) specimins ever found.

They went from alive and fighting to preserved in a way no other animal could reach them?

I'm thinking either canyon, tar pit, or volcanic ash.

The emu comparison is interesting. The Triceratops skin is interesting. I would like more factual images, maps and such and fewer traditional artistic renditions.

OK, I gotta say, this is way cool.

Scientists, in trying to piece together the history of our planet, have speculated about this behavior and now evidence has been discovered that gives their speculation significant credence.

Awesome.
