Gorgeous! I'd want one if I had the space! The bones seem to flow a LOT better than Coria and Bonaparte's original mount.

Though the hands seem a bit too splayed and "paw" like... reminds me more of a prosauropod than a sauropod. Sauropods should have tightly compressed vertical hands at all times (I wouldn't be surprised if the last titanosaurs actually had fused metacarpals! Just speculation, but very cool.)

I think this is one of my favorite sauropods so far.
