    I hope they didn't de-spine the dino. That would be like shortening the tail of rottweilers, inhumane.

    Not really dinosaur-related but since we already talked about the "Hobbit people" in this thread, I guess it's ok.

    Clone proto-humans plz!
    At the very least, it could help curb racism, since we'd all have something undeniably "para human" to rally around and ridicule

    Yea but what if they could bench press more then the modern humans? Then the racists would be like "oh, meen".

    Indeed, that is a very nice fossil! Scute positioning in Ankylosaurids (including Nodosaurids) has always been a bit hit and miss. There has been a rare few others that were "in situ" (when bones are fossilized in their correct placements, as opposed to scattered about, or in a pile), but this one is very complete on top of that.
