On the 30th of January, there was a huge dinosaur uncovered in Egypt.  It is said to reveal the lost link between Africa and Europe.  The huge, unique dinosaur uncovered on the 30th was a dinosaur scientists did not know very much about, or what happened to their species and how they are related to the dinosaurs found across Asia, or if they traveled in herds, the only thing they knew was that it was a herbivore.  The big new discovery had scientist buzzing.  In Egypt’s Sahara Desert, an expedition with the Mansoura University Vetrebrate Paleontology (MUVP) has unearthed a bus-sized sauropod, it belongs in the family of dinosaurs that includes the biggest behemoths to ever walk on land such as the Brachiosaurus and Diplodocus.  They are now calling the new discovery creature Mansourasaurus shahinae, and are studying it to help fill in the blanks left by the regions lack of fossils.  Mansourasaurus shahinae is the key to find new and earlier fossils.  The news was welcomed by other paleontologist, who now see the desert to the west of the Nile as fertile ground for new information on the former residents of Earth, who knows what else we can discovery on our lands.  Sallam said he knew from the first small piece of fossil he was shown that it was a big deal.  There is hope the discovery could bring more funding to paleontology field in Egypt and financing current studies.
