Re: JVP 29(2) Spoiler Alert

Nope, it's Angulamastacator (although I had the same reaction).

The etymology section says Angulus (corner, angle) is in reference to the
unusual morphology of the maxilla and the Big Bend of the Rio Grande, and
gives the preferred translation as 'bend chewer.'

Sure it isn't "masticator" ('chewer')?
