True...but what about:

Austrosaurus ("southern lizard"...so evocative...really tells you it's from

     North Queensland...well the name DOES rule out half of the earth's

Just as good is Antarctosaurus ("Not northern lizard").

Or how about Asiaceratops? (a horned face from.....Asia!)

"Wings!? I don't have wings!"
"Of course not! You're a boy!"
