Honorable Mentions

Amazonsaurus makes appearances in many studies and summarizing papers where it is discussed in relation to whatever other sauropod or animal that they were compared to. The only paper that is really worth reading today is the description of the fossils that were recovered and given the name Amazonsaurus. The description paper  includes line drawings and pictures of the fossils, images of the locale, and maps of the region where the fossil was discovered. Description of the geological setting is included as well, which is important for determining the setting in which the dinosaur lived, in addition to other particulars about the dinosaur and its fossil environment.
