I really like the colour. It reminds me to collecta jobaria.

I think the specific name is in honor of some one named Read? Not for the discoverer/namer who was Houghton at least. Hmm. I just don't know Green-Mamba. :/ BUT! I love the color and pattern on this Melanorosaurus! Great body and well done on those legs. ;)
