RS researches had found, in Sao Joao do Polesine (located 267 km from
Porto Alegre), a fossil of a 228 million years old dinosaur. According
to scientists, it is the largest one already found from that
geological age.

The discovery was done by researches from Ulbra (Luteran University of
Brazil) at Cachoeira do Sul.

[Though cachoeira is indeed waterfall, Cachoeira do Sul (in capitals)
is a city name.]
