Re: The Only _Scelidosaurus_ in the Western Hemisphere

In Portuguese there is the expression "Novíssimo Mundo" (more or less
meaning "Brand New World") to refer to Australia.

Western Hemisphere *geographically* means the half of globe west of
Greenwich meridian, *geopolitically* is often used as synonym to
Western World.
