Wow, that is a really amazing sculpture. Great job! It almost looks as if it is taxidermy.

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,

Blair

Thanks,

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.
