THE DINOSAURS OF MEXICO: THEIR HISTORY TOLD BY BONES AND TEETH

Abstract


Bone and tooth records of Mexican dinosaurs have increased during
recent years. However, they remain unknown for most readers. Currently
numerous sites located in Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua,
Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Michoacan, Puebla and Chiapas are known and each
one represents a temporal and geographical window.

The sites come from the Jurassic to the Cretaceous and they are
characterized by their particular paleoenvironment and fauna. The
Cañon Huizachal has one of the smaller celofisoids. Otlaltepec has a
mysterious dinosaur. In Piedritas there is the shorebird Ichthyornis.
In Aldama it is found the centrosaurine herds. Bonetes has the
primitive hadrosaurs Huehuecanauhtlus. La Bocana Roja has the theropod
Labocania and the enantiornite bird Alexornis. In El Gallo there are
the large lambeosaurines Magnapaulia and some tyrannosaurids.

Parras Basin has the ornithomimids, the chasmosaurin Coahuilaceratops,
the saurolophin Latirhinus and the lambeosaurin Velafrons. In Aguja
there are the pachycephalosaurid, nodosaurids, the small
centrosaurine, the chasmosaurine Agujaceratops and the titanosaurs.
Sabinas Basin has the big saurolophine “Sabinosaurio”. In Cuenca
Cabullona there are the ornitomimid Tototlmimus, the big tiranosaurids
and saurolophine like Gryposaurus. Finally, Ocozocoautla has the coast
maniraptor Richardoestesia.

In the future it is necessary to continue with the findings of new localities.
