Launching a Science

Euhelopus may not be the main catalyst for Chinese paleontology, but as the first major find documented and described from China, it does hold a very important place in the machine that eventually became Chinese paleontology. In part, because of that, it is a well known fossil and fairly well known, in paleontology at least, to a wide audience as a very large sauropod. One of the first titanosaurs discovered, despite the name not officially existing until 80 years later, Euhelopus was an enormous animal. Rather than looking for toys and video games, continue to read the long papers from Tuesday and visit Big Time Attic, because they deserve the traffic and Euhelopus was "Dino of the Day" number 42.
