    New dinosaur species discovered in Argentina - Unexplained Mysteries



    Palaeontologists have unearthed the fossil remains of a herbivorous dinosaur dating back 110 million years.
    Discovered at a site in the Argentinian province of Neuquen, the new species, which has been named Lavocatisaurus agrioensi, was a type of long-necked plant-eating sauropod dinosaur.

    Fossils belonging to a total of three individuals - one adult and two juveniles - were found at the site.

    "We found most of the cranial bones: the snout, the jaws, a lot of teeth, also the bones that define the eye sockets for example and, in that way, we were able to create an almost complete reconstruction," researcher Dr. Jose Luis Carballido told Agence France-Presse.

    What makes the discovery particularly interesting is the fact that the fossils were unearthed in a region that was thought to have been a barren desert when these dinosaurs were alive.

    "While one can imagine that this group of sauropods could have adapted to move in more arid environments, with little vegetation, little humidity and little water," said Dr. Carballido.

    "It's an area in which you wouldn't be looking for fossils."

    A video (in Spanish) with some photographs from the excavation can be viewed above..

    million years ago....that's pretty good. I think the time of the neanderthal man was about 40,000,000. But I'm not sure.

    It's alright if you laugh at that about me....I used to laugh at old timers too! I have a little difficulty reading numbers at times due to some vision issue mostly because of older age. You can imagine how I might react if I'm doing some math , work through the steps correctly, then make a silly error . I don't notice a problem drawing or painting as much. My art is not too spontaneously created.

    Knockoff, my lol and remembering was about the Sinclair sign. I hope you didn't take that as aimed at you as it was not. I meant to pick up the Sinclair post but it didn't happen!
