Big Paul - Sounds like a Mafia Name


Hey, long time, no update. Mostly due to my laziness. Anyways "Lambeosaurus" laticaudus has been renamed to Magnapaulia laticaudus. Yep, it means "Big Paul". Now I can't stop thinking about Big Fat Paulie from Family Guy. Sounds like a nickname, like "Big Al" or "Jane". And ironically, its feminine too.

Magnapaulia has also been down-sized to 41ft, still large but not as huge as Shantungosaurus. Now the latter's only competition (considering Huaxiaosaurus is synonymous) is Hypsibema. M. laticaudus might also be a species of Velafrons. She's been through a lot lately.
