New species



>From Mercury News:

*** 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 story,
