Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The giant concrete dinosaurs of Pablo Escobar:


"He said that one word- 'Gertie'- then he dropped the glass ball and it broke on the floor. He didn't say anything after that, so I knew he was dead. He said a lot of things that didn't mean anything."

"Sentimental fellow, aren't you?"

"Mmm... yes and no."

Irony: Searching paleontological literature with the considerable online resources available through my employer yields surprisingly little material about Columbia. Lots of stuff from digs all over South and Central America, but very little from Columbia. Either Columbia has a paucity of fossil sites owing to geological happenstance or scum like Pablo Escobar have made Columbia an uncongenial place for paleontologists.
