A New Dinosaur Mummy!

I know this sounds like snark (and tastes like chicken), but this is from National Geographic, "Dinosaur Mummy" Found; Has Intact Skin, Muscle:
Scientists today announced the discovery of an extraordinarily preserved "dinosaur mummy" with much of its muscles and bones still encased in an uncollapsed envelope of skin.

Preliminary studies of the 67-million-year-old hadrosaur, named Dakota, are already altering theories of what the ancient creatures' skin looked like and how quickly they moved, project researchers say. (See pictures of the mummy dino and its preserved skin.)
