A New Dinosaur Has Been Discovered
on 22 January 2016
Amateur fossil-hunters recently uncovered the bones of a brand new dinosaur in Wales. The dog-sized dino, newly named Dracoraptor hanigani (which means “dragon robber”), was a small, carnivorous species that lived during the Jurassicc period. With about 40% of its bones found, the fossil is one of the most complete Jurassic-period fossils in the world and it's currently on display at the National Museum Wales in Cardiff.
