The diplodocid sauropod Barosaurus is best known from the spectacular mounted skeleton in the atrium of the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). Apart from the disproportionately long neck it is similar in size to Diplodocus — but did Barosaurus get bigger? BYU field jacket 3GR was collected from the Jensen/Jensen quarry, Utah, in 1966 but only recently prepared. It contains three cervical vertebrae, designated A, B and C, anterior to posterior. They belong to Barosaurus based on elongation, broad prezygapophyseal facets, “hinged” prezygapophyseal rami with dorsomedial and dorsolateral faces, narrow, posteriorly set diapophyses beari

This was in a stream and obviously a joke. Of course it's ridiculous to add Spinosaurus to a game about the Hell Creek Formation and there are no evidences at all for a spinosaurid surviving that long into the cretaceous (to my knowledge there aren't even possible spinosaurid fossils from North America).
However Montanaspinus, later named M. inexpectatus ( ) became somewhat of a meme, especially inside a larger chat group which I'm also part of. Seeing all the kind of silly requests for a spinosaur, especially Spinosaurus, in Saurian, some of the group members decided that it could be kind of funny to erect Montanaspinus as a false taxon to lure fanboys/awesomebros in, and to expose how litt
