The fossil itself is really incredibly well preserved and perfectly articulated:

One thing I might mention, I have seen a number of articles claiming that the etymology of the name "Gordodon" is from the Spanish for fat and Latin for tooth.  While I am not saying that this is inaccurate, I would bet a large some of money this name comes in part from it being found near 'gordo.
