  1. Fossils from Tanzania

    Hi all, Can anyone help me to identify which animal has the bones like the ones in the photo 1 attached? Photos 2 and 3 are to illustrate the cave and its surroundings. The bones have been found in the underwater cave in Tanzania. It has hundreds of the fossilized bones (seemingly, these are the bones of hippos; unfortunately, I did not have a chance to examine them in detail). Today we collected the bones like this (photo 1). It seems to me this piece is Cetacea Epiphysis, though I do not know what animal it belongs to. The bones were lying a pile in one underwater “room” (more than 10+ pieces). Can anyone help me with identification? Thanks!

  3. A new paper is available regarding a new titanosaur species from Tanzania: Eric Gorscak, Patrick M. O'Connor, Eric M. Roberts and Nancy J. Stevens. 2017. The Second Titanosaurian (Dinosauria: Sauropoda) from the middle Cretaceous Galula Formation, southwestern Tanzania, with Remarks on African Titanosaurian Diversity. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. DOI: 10.1080/02724634.2017.1343250 The affiliation of Shingopana with Rinconsaurus, Muyelensaurus, Aeolosaurus, Gondwanatitan, and Overosaurus in contrast to the affiliation of Rukwatitan with Saltasaurus, Neuquensaurus, Isisaurus, Paralititan, and Opisthocoelicauda provides new insights into the macroevolution of Gondwanan titanosaurs outside South America by showing that Cretaceous titanosaurs in sub-Saharan Africa were rather diverse. The abstract of the thesis by Eric Gorscak (https://etd.ohiolink.edu/pg_10?0::NO:10:P10_ACCESSION_NUM:ohiou1478778037108276) also mentions titanosaur specimens from Campanian-Maastrichtian deposits in Egypt and Kenya that are closely related to Saltasaurus and European titanosaurs, showing that middle-late Cretaceous titanosaurs were more temporally distributed in Africa than previously thought.

  5. Good day to all of you. I have come to discover an amazing site in a remote location of the Serengeti: a dry river bed with hundreds of bones and what looks like stone tools too. The relevant authorities have been informed and i am still waiting for their visit. I have attached a few pics of what i found. Owing to the park rules, I may not pick up a few samples for proper photos. So i tried what i could Since we are not very far from Olduvai Gorge, i do believe this site to be of high importance. I would really appreciate any info on the pictured findings I am going to the site again this afternoon and will try to find bigger pieces and make also better pictures... Hoping to hear from you soon, Best regards, Okaroo
  6. New Titanosaur From Tanzania

    An interesting article about a new sauropod from Tanzania: http://phys.org/news/2014-09-species-titanosaurian-dinosaur-tanzania.html The discovery of a titanosaur from the Middle Cretaceous deposits in Tanzania is significant in many respects. First, it represents the third diagnostic titanosaur from Cretaceous sediments in sub-Saharan Africa. Second, it bolsters the hypothesis by Paul Sereno and colleagues that the breakup of Gondwana was a rather gradual one, so a number of titanosaurs known from South America may also have inhabited sub-Saharan Africa at a time when South America was slowly breaking away from Africa (the basal somphospondylian Angolatitan is of late Turonian age and also from sub-Saharan Africa, so it's not unreasonable to imagine titanosaurs populating South America and Africa in the Cenomanian and Turonian). Third, Rukwatitan is the first middle Cretaceous dinosaur from the Africa's Great Rift Valley. The non-titanosaur somphospondyl Wintonotitan and the lithostrotian Diamantinasaurus from Australia are of about the same age as Rukwatitan, so it's not implausible that some titanosaurs made it to Australia by immigrating to Africa, and then indirectly to Australia via Antarctica. With Rukwatitan, we are just beginning to appreciate the diversity of middle Cretaceous Gondwanan titanosaurs outside South America.
