Hi all — I am now in La Plata, and have been since Sunday. The only reason I have not posted anything from here yet is that I still have not finished studying either of the dinosaurs that are housed here that I wanted to see… That said, I do have something to show in the meantime.
On my last day in Buenos Aires, it occurred to me that I had not gone through the displays at the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales (MACN) properly. I failed to do so during my 2013 visit too, and I decided to remedy that this time. I would have taken far better photos than you will see here had I been able take my tripod in; sadly, I was not allowed.
The dinosaur and reptile hall in the MACN is like a greatest hits album of Argentinian Mesozoic fossils — almost all of the classics are there. For the most part, I’ll let the photos (and captions) speak for themselves, and will hopefully report on an Antarctic dinosaur tomorrow!
