Sanpasaurus imperfectus by HodariNundu Sanpasaurus imperfectus by HodariNundu
Un "Sanpasaurus" imperfectus, reconstruido como un escelidosaurio gigante.
En realidad, el nombre "Sanpasaurus" corresponde a un sauropodo; la especie "imperfectus" consiste en un esqueleto incompleto de un dinosaurio ornitisquio, con patas similares a las de un iguanodonte.
Junto con estos restos se hallaron espinas similares a las de un estegosaurio que podrían pertenecer al mismo animal.
La idea de que "Sanpasaurus" imperfectus pudiera ser un escelidosaurio gigante de formidables espinas no es mía; le debo la inspiración a Rexisto, artista gráfico y paleo- de este blog: [link]
Sea cual fuese la verdadera identidad de "Sanpasaurus" imperfectus, un escelidosaurio gigante parece ser la mejor explicación para algunas huellas de gran tamaño que datan del Jurásico inferior, por lo que no pudieron haber sido hechas por iguanodontes o hadrosaurios.
(Primer "S. imperfectus" en DA)

A "Sanpasaurus" imperfectus, depicted as a giant scelidosaur.
In reality, the name "Sanpasaurus" belongs to a sauropod; species "imperfectus" has no genus name yet and consists on a very incomplete skeleton of an ornitischian dinosaur, with legs very similar to those of an iguanodont. Along with these remains, weird, long stegosaur-like spikes were found, which could belong to the same dinosaur.
The concept of "Sanpasaurus" imperfectus as a giant scelidosaur with formidable spikes is not mine; I owe the inspiration to Rexisto, graphic artist and paleo buff from this blog: [link]

Whatever the real identity of "Sanpasaurus" imperfectus was, a giant scelidosaur seems to be the best explanation for some fossil footprints from the Early Jurassic, which couldn´t have been made by iguanodonts or hadrosaurs.

According to what I've seen, I don't think Sanpasaurus was a real dinosaur.

Yet you have never seen one, have you? ;)

Well that's a no brainer. No one's seen a dinosaur and it's pretty likely no one ever will. But I was saying that based on what I pictured the bones to be. It just seems like an unorganized heap of fossil fragments. But unless we can bypass time paradoxes, many of our hypotheses can never be fully proven. So either one of us could be wrong here.

Everybody has seen a dinosaur! Just look outside and your bound to find one.

Oh yeah! Like that magpie on my porch. Or that hawk way up there. Or that heron in the river. Or those city slicker pigeons.

That's the fun of researching dinosaurs. Approximately half of it comes from your imagination.

Saludos HodariNundu, gracias por ilustrar y citar mi teoría. Estoy revisando los huesos y las huellas correspondientes a este animal y es posible que reciba un nombre nuevo. Si bien es de menor tamaño que lo estimado en un principio, ya que al tener una tibia de 60 cm tendría un fémur ligeramente mayor pero no de 1 metro, como suele suceder en lo animales bípedos. Me han gustado las púas que le has puesto, revisaré bien las mismas para darme una mejor idea....
