Paperless Dinosaurs

Bahariasaurus has all but been destroyed in the modern age. Allied bombing took the original material and time, war, and a lack of preservation has made the illustrations and writings of Ernst Stromer rare and potentially irrevocably lost over time. Some of the only materials that mention, let alone describe, Bahariasaurus are the collected descriptions of Saharan dinosaurs that were put together by Paul Sereno, et al. back in 1996. This material is extensive but unfortunately still lacking in original evidence from Stromer.
