New, sauropod species can be discovered in Argentina


PARIS – A team of paleontologists from Argentina and Argentina discovered the remains of dinosaurs 110 million years ago in the middle of the country, the La Matanza National University was discovered the next day.

The remains were made up of three separate dinosaurs, the most popular being Diplodocus and Brontosaurus. This new species is called Lavocatisaurus agrioensis.

"Most of the skull bones found: the nose, the jaws, the teeth, and the bones that define the eyelids, for example, and so we were able to create almost complete reconstruction," said Jose Luis Carballido, researcher at the Egidio Feruglio museum and scientific National Council for Research.

The neck, tail and back parts are also found. "It's not just discovering a new species in an area where you can not expect to find the stones, but the skull is almost complete," Carballido added. The remains are approx. They were 12 meters (39 feet) long and two minors were about six to seven meters.

According to paleontologists, dinosaurs moved in one group and died together.

"This discovery is the first record for an adult and two young people as well," said Jose Ignacio Canudo, chief student of the University of Zaragoza.

The area where fossils were found is unusual for dinosaurs, as this desert was sporadic with ponds in that era.

The Sauropods were the greatest creatures who ever walked on the planet. It is believed that Supersaurus may be up to 33-34 meters long and the Argentinean may have measured up to 120 tons.

They were herbaceous, four-legged, with long neck and tail, massive bodies and small head. But the discovery of Neuquen, published in Acta Palaeontologica Polonica's scientific journals, remains a huge surprise.

"Although it can be imagined that this group could adapt in a drier environment with little vegetation, low humidity, and little water, this is an area where they would not look for stones," said Carballido.
