Scientist Discovers New Dinosaur

Oct 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KMID

A University of Chicago scientist says he's discovered a new dinosaur. Paul Serano says the "Pegomastax Africanus" would have looked something like a "two legged-porcupine". He also says the animal was less than two feet long and weighed less than a house cat.

We're both fairly ugly, though much sexier than any Jacob in the world.

paul serano is a joke but not as bad as n.g. magazine he draw raptor rex like a bird bird have nothing to do with dinosaurs protoavis was before coelophyis all dinosaurs had scalely skin 2 rows of armo or more on there backs they found all dinosaurs group with those and protofeathers is dead skin collagen fiber the great dinosaurs find that link dinosaurs with modern crocs he did not say nothing like sheildcroc link to frill dinosaurs bobtail croc armo leg link to dinosaurs with armo leg and diverse brain in the crocodilian system like t.rex. and duckcroc link to duckbill dinosaurs and little dinosaurs coelophyis type of dinosaurs the lizard hip theropod dino that they found with hepatic piston and diaghragm a modern crocodilian feature dinosaurs is just a prehistoric aligator and are very much alive velociraptor is a bird not a dinosaurs link to archaeoteryx with bird hip stop pass off flightless birds as dino or flying birds like micoraptor with no links to coelophyis type of dino clearly he is bias

Hi BANDit. It's good to see that they still exist, us BADs love taunting you. I mean, just look at it, there is so much evidence to suggest birds = dinosaurs and yet nothing to suggest they aren't!!! So, is Compsognathus a bird? Yutyrannus? Gallimimus? Theriznosaurus?

Oh dear, you are fails to science!!!

I know, BANDits are the worst!

Also, what's this about Deinosuchus. As far as I know Phobosuchus is the invalid genus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deinosuchus

Ceo will probably now tell me that Deinosuchus evolved from Allosaurus or something stupid like that.

The rule of ABSOLUTE MONOSPECIFITY says that ALL SPECIES REQUIRE THEIR OWN GENUS. "D". Riograndensis is obviously a different species to D.Rugosus, so IT REQUIRES ITS OWN GENUS! And Phobosuchus sounds really cool, also.

dinosaurs and crocs are more close to turtle than bird short tail bobtailcroc simular inside the mouth and 2 rows armo.modern science and kat scan is bad for b.a.d. scientist cause with there old superfacial science and ghost theory. dinosaurs is more croc like than before and is very much alive only aquatic form thou its just a prehistoric aligator. b.a.d. scientist /n.g.magazine/ are just mad about false chinese fossil that why they go with lies and propoganda tv shows you can not hide information now of days .yutyrannus skin trust me look like a croc like all dinosaurs just like carnotaurus with croc very scaley armo croc bums thermregulation cold blooded armo skin on there backs they found allmost complete fossil skin of carnotaurus
