Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Africa

Algoasaurus was a small African member of the long-necked sauropod family. Discovered in a rock quarry in 1903, the workman didn't realize the importance of the find and they destroyed the fossils and used most of them to make bricks! The few bones that were saved showed that this dinosaur might be related to Apatosaurus  or maybe the huge Argentinosaurus 

Algoasaurus has never officially been described. Its location in South Africa suggests that it may be related to the titanosaurs, but bone similarities seem to place it closer to the diplodocids.
