  *** New dinosaur species discovered in England

  Remains of a frightening, flesh-eating dinosaur found on England's
  southern coast are from a new species, scientists said Thursday. The
  26-foot-long Neovenator probably fed on herds of plant-eating
  Iguanadons, which were common in the area, a scientist said. The
  dinosaur, scientifically named Neovenator Salerii after the Salero
  family on whose land the fossils were found, lived 120 million years
  ago. Experts have confirmed that Neovenator is a previously unknown
  species, distantly related to the Allosaurus. For the full text
