Nancy, This is absolutely marvellous news, thank you. I have always been interested in our long lost ancestors since the stone age,heh heh. Seriously, this discovery will increase our knowledge about how our dinosaurs lived. Welcome Abydosaurus to the dinosaur famille. Noté

It is believed that the species that pre-date Abydosaurus never developed huge teeth like molars because they would swallow not chew their food, (mainly plants) Brachiosaurus. It's fortunate that these specimens were found in such good condition to reveal a host of secrets.

Swallowing their food whole - no chewing. Sounds like my beloved Coco when she gets a treat - Now you see it, now you don't.

I think if I had my life over I would be out there - digging away - the wind in my hair and the sun on my face.

Just the space - and one with ancient history.

Thank you Nancy for a very interesting article.
