Brachytrachelopan mesai by EmperorDinobot Brachytrachelopan mesai by EmperorDinobot
A new dicraeosaurid based on most of a presacral vertebral column, ribs, an ilium, and the articular ends of the bones at the knee joint, Brachytrachelopan earned its unique name through its short neck. Even among dicraeosaurids, it's got a short neck. The spines of the first few dorsal verts also lean forward. It's apparently closest to Dicraeosaurus.

This is the last sauropod for a while. If you've been observant, my wave of sauropods commenced with the longest necks to finally the shortest necks. I didn't plan it to be this way, 'till I just realized such a thing. Ain't it cute? :lol:

Este si que tiene un cuello corto, muy disimil para los sauropodos.

Si si. Me imagino que hay otros que no han sido descubierto o descritos. Hasta ahora tenemos a los dicraeosauridos (Amargasaurus no lo tenia tan corto, pero...) y al Bonitasaura. Y me parece que el Nigersaurus tiene un cuello bastante corto tambien. Por ahi seguro va a salir un saltasaurido con un cuello corto igual que los otros. Ya veras.
