Antarctic Dinosaurs Found

Penguinosaurus?  Not exactly, but two previously unknown species of dinosaurs were found in different parts of Antarctica recently, according to EurekAlert.  Bones of a theropod and a sauropod were found by separate teams.  Judd Case, one of the discoverers of the theropod (of which T. Rex and velociraptor are examples), was perplexed by the find: “One of the surprising things is that animals with these more primitive characteristics generally haven’t survived as long elsewhere as they have in Antarctica.  But, for whatever reason, they were still hanging out on the Antarctic continent.”

Dinosaur finds are always exciting news, but we don’t need the storytelling that usually goes with it.
