This is a juvenile Psittacosaurus from Liaoning.  Could you let me have your view on its authenticity and whether it is a composite?

 

Thanks!

I think it is a composite and the snout has something wrong with it.

Several of the bones and the tail look to have a different state of preservation than other parts.

Anatomically it seems correct. But I find it telling that nearly all these types of specimens have very similar postures. The torso looks mostly real but I wouldn't be surprised if the head and tail were composited on. Especially the tail looks suspicious.

Yes, tail and skull looking like a composite for me, too. Proportions does not fit good.

And some positions of the "hands" and "feets" looking odd for me...
