German Dreadnought

As small as Dicraeosaurus is in relation to other sauropods the original literature by Walter Janensch is enormous. Mike Taylor keeps Janensch's publication hosted on his website in the original German. I have not been able to read the text in its entirety as yet, mainly because I do not read German well or fast. Either way, it is a great piece of original literature to add to any collection. That is not the only research that has been conducted with Dicraeosaurus of course. In more recent times pneumaticity and feeding mechanisms have both been researched in this moderately sized African/Gondwanan sauropod.
