Will we ever run out of dinosaur bones?
The BBC reported yesterday that paleontologists in Australia have discovered a new species of dinosaur—a large, plant-eating sauropod nicknamed Zac. This follows a July discovery of three new species in the same part of northern Australia. It seems as if paleontologists are always stumbling across new skeletal remains, but how long can this last? Will we ever run out of dinosaur fossils? picked by kakana 2 years ago
