Remains of new Triassic sauropodomorph from Brazil (news story)



From: Ben Creisler

A number of news stories from Brazil are announcing the very recent
discovery of the remains of three sauropodomorph dinosaur skeletons
(apparently juvenile) near Santa Maria in Rio Grande do Sul state. One
of the specimens appears to be complete and articulated (maybe the
most complete dinosaur skeleton found to date in Brazil). A team from
Laboratório de Paleobiologia da Universidade Federal do Pampa
(UNIPAMPA) is conducting the research.

All the stories are in Portuguese but online translation tools can help.
