SD-Led Team Discovers New Dinosaur Species

March 1, 2013, 10:52 AM

RAPID CITY, SD -

A team led by a South Dakota School of Mines and Technology assistant professor has discovered a new species of plant-eating dinosaurs.

Clint Boyd and his colleagues have published the first fossil evidence of an extinct relative of the crocodile feeding on small dinosaurs. The findings show that baby ornithopod dinosaurs were a food of choice for the crocodyliform.

The findings are significant because dinosaurs are typically depicted as the dominant species.

The team found a large number of tiny bits of dinosaur bones dating back to the late Cretaceous period in southern Utah. Evidence shows bite marks on bone joints and proof of a crocodyliform tooth embedded in a dinosaur femur.

The dinosaur species has yet to be named.

The research was published in the academic journal PLOS ONE.
