Cathartesaura anaerobica by EmperorDinobot Cathartesaura anaerobica by EmperorDinobot
Silly name, eh? Paleontologists have a thing for names. You see, this Argentinian dinosaur was found in a place named "La Buitrera", which in spanish means "The Vulture's place" AKA "The place where Vultures hang out and...hang out ":lol:
Cathartes aura is the binomial for "Turkey vulture", and, well...while people think the name is a coincidence, its not. It's a joke XD.
It's a rebbachisaurid of some sort. Named in 2005.

Anaerobica is for the Comapny who sponsored the campaign! I work with S. Apesteguia and P. Gallina, who described the specie! The name sounds very original to me! At least much better than Bonitasauria! jaja!

Im going to watch your gallery, see you!

Anaerobica means "oxygen-less" why?
Good drawing by the way, keep drawing less known dinosaurs, they deserve it!
