Ancient iguana lived in dinosaur nesting site

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The newly discovered “mighty traveler of Egg Mountain” is an ancient lizard that lived 75 million years ago.

That’s 10 million years before dinosaurs went extinct.

Paleontologists discovered the fossilized remains of two almost-complete skeletons of this extinct critter in a dinosaur nesting site in northwestern Montana.

The animal has been officially dubbed Magnuviator ovimonsensis, which translates roughly to “mighty traveler of Egg Mountain,” and experts say it is an extremely unusual find.
