New dinosaur species found in Madagascar

The meat-eating Dahalokely tokana is thought to have roamed the Earth 90 million years ago.

Dinosaur fossils unearthed in Madagascar are of a new species that roamed the Earth about 90 million years ago, say US researchers.

These stories are always a disappointment. The headline says New dinosaur species found in Madagascar, so naturally one would expect that they'd found an enclave of triceratops or Iguanadon roaming about, chomping on the undergrowth, but then we find they were roaming about, chomping the undergrowth, 90 million years ago. :(

Still, Dahalokely tokana is a top name, so I'll give them that.

I Yahooed and found drawings. It's fascinating to know the remains of something that existed 90 million years ago are still around, even bone fragments.

It reminds me of Majungasaurus.
