Writing Like A Maniac

Aeolosaurus has been written about a lot more than it has starred in documentaries. The mentions of it in scholarly articles are pretty fantastic as well as the number of papers dedicated solely to Aeolosaurus. One of these papers that is of great importance is a 2007 article by Casal, et al. which details the discovery of a new species of Aeolosaurus from Argentina. This species is the second named species, which is why it is an important paper. Additionally, Martinelli, Riff and Lopes wrote a paper discussing when and where fossils of Aeolosaurus have been discovered in South America that makes for a rather fun and interesting read. I encourage everyone to read the first paper if you have to choose between them for any reason!
