January 27, 2000
Argentinian paleontologist and director of the Florentino Ameghino museum in southern Rio Negro province, Carlos Munoz said, "Two cervical vertebrae 3.94 feet high were found, in addition to a femur 6.56 feet in height and some other indicative bones." "We are going to be working until Jan. 31 and then we will take everything to the museum to remove the sediment, study it and later mount a presentation," said Munoz.
As of January, 2000, this dinosaur is yet unnamed; its classification has not yet been determined.
