This is a small Xinpusaurus about 35cm in length.  Is it genuine?

Looks too good to be true

Taking more pictures at angles up close would be quite interesting to be able to give a more accurate opinion. However, based only on this photo, it seems that a good part of the skull is missing...

The bones are real enough for me, the anatomical position is excellent, but the skeleton is quite disjointed, and I believe that if someone tried to do a makeup on it, he would try to do something more complete, especially in the skull, phalanges and the tail, which are usually the first to make-up looks that look more complete. My opinion? An excellent and magnificent specimen of Xinpusaurus from Guanling! :dinothumb:

 

我的朋友,你在哪裡得到這些東西? :blink: :o

 

Thanks, my good friend, for your advice.  It was said that usually big ones larger than 70cm are found and mostly they are of very large individuals.  Small ones are relatively uncommon.

Can't say I've ever seen one of those before. But I can say I now have one more creature to put on my wishlist :P

Looks carved to me. I wouldn't touch it. :unsure:

There could very well be parts of it that are real. 

The part I have circled - most of the body/ribs - looks a bit funky to me - too continuous, no margin between bones. 

Seems odd, to me.

I have similar concerns over the rib area why additional closeup photos would help
