        The new sauropod was found by Vasco Ribeiro and it is been digging by
 Vasco and my self under orientation of Telles Antunes.
        It has neither 2 ton pelvis nor 66 feet tall. 
        Until now we dug a fibula (with 120cm length) and 23 vertebrae (all the
 sacral vertebrae and several caudal vertebrae), but the excavation is not
 finish yet!
