Last night, on September 2, the National Museum of Brazil was consumed by fire. Alongside millions of other irreplaceable biological and anthropological items, many important fossils were present in the building at the time, including the type specimens of Santanaraptor, Gondwanatitan, and Cearadactylus. It is likely all of these specimens are gone forever. Our thoughts go out to Brazilian researchers for the tragic loss of cultural heritage.
