BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - Argentine paleontologists
declared on Wednesday that they had
found a sprawling "Jurassic
Park" of dinosaur fossils in the heart
of Patagonia they dubbed
"possibly the most significant find
The find in the province of Chubut, on
an arid plateau some 950 miles
south of Buenos Aires, includes four
unknown species of dinosaurs
from the Jurassic period around 150-160
million years ago, one of the
world's oldest known mammals and a host
of fossils of reptiles and
ancient sea turtles.
Experts estimated they had unearthed
only around two percent of the
contents of the vast fossil deposit,
which sprawls over hundreds of
square miles in southern Argentina.
