dinosaur hotspot

I bet you didn't know Argentina is one of Earth's dinosaur hotspots! Well, it is. Equal with the Badlands in the States or Drumheller in Canada (funny, we saw a poster for the Royal Tyrell Museum in the open lab), anyway. I like visiting museums like this all over (I saw one in Taiwan) - you see what dinosaurs come from different places - museums back home are great, but T. Rex gets a little boring after a while.

On the right is a few bones of what used to be largest dinosaur in the world - the Argentinosaurus - and that's just its backside. I was kind of hoping they'd have some small mention of the very recent discovery (well, report - they've been digging up the bones for seven years) of the newest largest dinosaur, also from around here, but nothing. Still, a great little museum.

Did you know that there used to be giant sea scorpions in the dinosaur days? Scary sounding things.
