That'd be great, Spartacus. I'm sure it's a top read in Poland! Looks like the article is in French so I'm sure TPOTH can help us out if we do get a copy.
One day one of those academics will find one. Then again, it might be you, Kevin, Spartacus or any of us. I think that's part of the fun of palaeontology, anyone can find something really exciting!
