Re: oldest sauropod found

From: "Thomas Hammann"
> Its name is Antentonitrus ingenipes. The remains were originally found in
the year 1981, but now rediscovered in the archives of the University of
Johannesburg/South Africa. The species seems to be the oldest sauropod ever
found(!) with an age of about 215 Mio. years. The estimated length of
Antentonitrus ingenipus is about 10 meters.

I've just seen some images of the partial remains on the RTBF (Belgian
television). All isn't mounted yet as it seems. I'll check the RTBF website
tomorrow about that.
