New photo gallery “Ancient Civilizations of South America” ??.
Photo Gallery I booked my trip for more than 5000 km to the most remote places in South America, in 2010. Markedly denoted differences geological, climatic and ecological, the focus is given to Archaeology (field that differs from Paleontology, by studying only the human factor, cultural relations and interactions with the environment they live in). I visited the ruins of cities, temples and aqueducts in several countries, finding Amazonian Geoglyphs (evidence of the legendary civilization that legendary English Colonel Fawcett tried both), Andean civilizations like the Incas and the Tiwanaku and the desert peoples, like the Nazca and Atacameños.
Starting the trip in Acre, Brazilian Amazon, across the border into Bolivia in the jungle. Later, the rise to the Andes. The trip takes its course southward, dipping in the deserts and Bolivian Salar de Uyuni. Crossing the border Bolivia / Chile, falling in Desierto de Atacama, photographed incredible landscapes of that magical place. Entering the desert peruando, I went to Nazca Geoglyphs flew and visited the tombs of mummies. In the Peruvian Andes, Inca ruins of civilization. Then, finally, returned to Brazil, crossing the Amazon frontier Peru / Brazil.

New dinosaur in the background!
To celebrate Brazil, put the Irritator challengeri, one espinossaurídeo Northeast who lived during the Cretaceous Period, from the Romualdo Member, Fm. Santana, Araripe Basin, described in 1996 by Martill, Cruikshank, Frey, Small and Clarke.
Its name is in honor of Dr. Challenger’s character from the book “The Lost World” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Irritator was described based only on a partial skull discovered by amateurs who sold illegally (via trade because trade in Brazilian fossils is FORBIDDEN ).
Interestingly, this is very similar to espinossaurídeo Angaturama limai , who lived in the same geographic area and season. There is a possibility the two species are synonyms. However, researchers at the National Museum (Rio de Janeiro) have sufficient reasons to justify the existence of both genders separately.
