Re: [dinosaur] Dinosaur injuries + Dinosaurs of China + digitizing K-Pg mammal teeth + oldest German tracks + more



Delete "Miocene" in the condor item! My last-minute  bad insertion based on another item I was looking at at the time. It's Pleistocene in date (30,000 years ago), of course...

Giant condor named Pampagyps, although the official paper is not out yet  online for the journal (Revista del Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales)
