Fossil of an Armored Dinosaur Hatchling: Youngest Nodosaur Ever Discovered
ScienceDaily (Sep. 14, 2011) — Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine with help from an amateur fossil hunter in College Park, Md., have described the fossil of an armored dinosaur hatchling. It is the youngest nodosaur ever discovered, and a founder of a new genus and species that lived approximately 110 million years ago during the Early Cretaceous Era. Nodosaurs have been found in diverse locations worldwide, but they’ve rarely been found in the United States. The findings are published in the September 9 issue of the Journal of Paleontology.
