Argentinean dinosaurs in Lisbon

news: Argentinean dinosaurs in Lisbon

IN 2001, palaeontologists announced that they had discovered a fossil Jurassic Park in Patagonia, Argentina. Recently, some of these huge skeletons have been exhibited at the Colombo Shopping Centre in Lisbon. Twelve skeletons of different dinosaur species were on show, some of which were previously unknown, such as the ‘Argentiniosaurus’. The huge animal’s remains come from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, when this species wandered the huge land mass continent, Pangea, between 155-65 million years ago. The exhibition was organised by the Argentine Egidio Fervglio Palaeontology Museum, in conjunction with Lisbon’s Natural History Museum.
