Mientras Concavenator (o "konkabenatoru", como lo llaman allí) lo peta en tierras niponas gracias a la exposición "Dinosaurios maravillosos de España", Elena Cuesta, quien está realizando su tesis doctoral sobre "Pepito", anda pululando por la otra punta del globo. Elena se encuentra en una estancia de tres meses en Argentina, y está recorriendo los distintos museos del país para comparar

Trelew, una ciudad de la provincia patagónica de Chubut, se caracteriza por sus lagunas, sus aires galeses, su cercanía al mar, la posibilidad de acercarte a realizar avistamientos de ballenas, de rodearte de los majísimos pingüinos de Magallanes pero, sobre todo, por ser lugar de ubicación del Museo Paleontológico Egidio Feruglio.

Stop the presses. There is literally a new record-breaker on the block. Bigger than Argentinosaurus. Possibly bigger than even Puertasaurus, Ruyangosaurus and Alamosaurus. Some of these new giants (yes, there's a whole herd of them found, in VERY good condition) have nearly 10-foot long femurs. It's a titanosaur to be sure, from Argentina. I suspect based on the femur proportions that this species is a lognkosaur. That sharp lateral bulge very high on the femur gives it away. If anyone wants [...]

The largest creature to have ever walked the earth has been discovered in Argentina. Its gigantic bones were found by a local farm worker in a desert in Patagonia, the southern Argentine region that has yielded many important dinosaur discoveries.Based on the size of the thigh bones – taller than an average man – the dinosaur would have been 130 feet (39.6m) long and 65ft (19.2m) tall.Its calculated 77-tonne weight would have made it as heavy as 14 African elephants, beating the previous [...]

I am aware the geology has been "light" in these postings but we are going to Iguazu Falls this afternoon and then to the Central American volcano's after that. There will be more geology then. For now, enjoy these photo's from one of my favorite cities, Buenos Aires, Argentina.This is a shot from 37,000 feet down to the Valdez Peninsula, along Argentina's east coast. There is much wildlife here including the Southern Right Whale and many seals. I traveled overland on this peninsula in the [...]

Back in the 1990's and early 2000's I spent a lot of time going to Antarctica. All told, I completed 30 trips to the "ice". And the jumping off point was always on the island of Tierra Del Fuego in either Argentina or Chile. I am quite familiar with these waters and was happy to go on a three day cruise to Cape Horn and Punta Arenas, Chile.Here is a view of the landing beach at Cape Horn.Our ship is called the Australis. Landing on the island only has a 30% success rate. So we were quite jazzed [...]

En este caso se trata de una nueva diagnosis de los restos de Tyrannotitan a la luz de los últimos conocimientos en este grupo. La filogenia de los tetanuros derivados está actualmente bajo debate.

2013 was a particularly eventful year for the world's volcanoes. Out of an estimated 1,500 active volcanoes, 50 or so erupt every year, spewing steam, ash, toxic gases, and lava. In 2013, erupting volcanoes included Italy's Mount Etna, Alaska's Mount Pavlof, Indonesia's Mount Sinabung, Argentina's Volcán Copahue, and a new island emerging off the coast of Nishinoshima, Japan. In Hawaii, the famed Kilauea volcano continued to send lava flowing toward the sea.Collected here are scenes from the [...]

En el primero de ellos, se estudiaron cucarachas conservadas en ámbar fósil del Cretácico Inferior (120 millones de años) del Líbano. Al parecer, estos animales incluidos en la familia Blattulidae, se encargaban de las tareas de descomposición fecal de

There may be some truth to the old joke about only insects surviving an apocalypse. Down in Patagonia, thousands of miles from the site of the deadly asteroid impact in present-day Mexico that killed off the dinosaurs, most bugs easily survived one of Earth's worst mass extinctions 65 million years ago. The discovery adds to a growing body of evidence that the Cretaceous mass extinction

A fossilized tomatillo, still in its papery shell, is the earliest fruit from the tomato family ever found in South America, researchers reported Oct. 30 at the Geological Society of America's annual meeting in Denver. The 52.2-million-year-old tomatillo was discovered at the fossil-rich Laguna del Hunco, Argentina, where ancient lakebeds interlayer with volcanic ashes,
