NoobMember0 XPJun-23-2013 3:29 PMAfterter excavating the fossils, my sister's team sent the bones to be researched, and, unfortunately, they're not really that of a giant pachycephalosaur. The large bones belong to a carcharodontosaur about 50 feet long (give or take a few feet), presumably Giganotosaurus. It is locked in combat with an Ekrixinatosaurus that the skull dome belongs to, which is about 35 feet long, maybe more. Although it appears the Ekrixinatosaurus lost due to the shattered skull and the bones lodged in the throat of the Giga, which it likely choked to death on, it certainly held its own judging by the puncture wounds on the bones of the Giga. The bones have been sold to a fossil enthusiast for $12,000.

NoobMember0 XPJun-23-2013 4:50 PMNot very much. There was a femur, broken tibia, teeth, a few vertebrae, a couple broken ribs and some fragments. For Ekrixinatosaurus there was a jaw piece, teeth, top of skull and a vertebrae.
