WOW! Not only is the sculpture very impressive, but actually discovering this creature along with your brother?!?!? - FANTASTIC! I agree with Swampqueen: you must live a very interesting life!

Yes, in 2003 with an expedition led by Dr. Sebastian Apesteguia found the remains of this species. My brother, Fabian Gonzalez found the first bone and then I found the rest.

A magnificent piece Jorge,

I hope you and your brother publish the animal's description in a scientific journal. I'd like to read all about it!
Thanks for sharing,

Buitreraptor gonzalezorum was published in the journal Nature in November 2005. author of the study are Dr. Peter Mackoviky and Dr. Sebastian Apesteguia.
The cover of this number is an illustration of my authorship.

Kudos! Nature is a very prestigious peer-reviewed journal. I can only dream of the day that I will get published in such a high impact journal. I'll look up the study at our national library.

Cheers and all the best.
