Brontomerus “Thunder-Thighs” Mcintoshi

Second science discovery post of the morning: UK newspaper The Telegraph reported yesterday that scientists in Utah have discovered a “charismatic” new type of dinosaur with massive thighs.

Dr. Mike Taylor from University College London explains:

When we recognised the weird shape of the hip, we wondered what its significance might be, but we concluded that kicking was the most likely. The kick would probably have been used when two males fought over a female.
