Auca Mahuevo

The southern part of south america, known as Patagonia, is an area of dry, rocky desert, spanning Argentina and Chile. At Auca Mahuevo there is a spectacular dinosaur nesting site, where the desert surface is littered with the eggs of Late Cretaceous sauropods (huge plant-eating dinosaurs), laid 80 million years ago. Ancient Patagonia was also the home of predators, including the formidable Giganotosaurus and the smaller Aucasaurus— a dangerous visitor that may have fed on the defenseless Auca Mahuevo hatchlings.
