Bajadasaurus (“downhill lizard”) is a genus of sauropod from the Early Cretaceous Bajada Colorada Formation of Argentina. Bajadasaurus is distinct due to the extremely long neural spines, similar to those of its close relative Amargasaurus, that extend from its neck vertebrae. These spines curved forward over the animal’s neck, resulting in the dinosaur’s species name, pronuspinax, meaning “forward curving spine.”
The only known specimen was discovered in 2010. The specimen, of which only some teeth were initially exposed, was found by Argentinian palaeontologist Pablo Gallina. As fossils in this area are often fragile, the specimen was not excavated bone-by-bone in the field but extracted as a single large block of rock and bone wrapped in plaster. Preparation of the block in the laboratory then revealed most of the skull as well as the first two and probably the fifth neck vertebrae of a new genus of dinosaur.
