Dinosaurs Roamed Near Nation's Capital

Dinos Were Here
Feb. 26, 2008 -- Until recently, evidence for dinosaurs in the northeastern
United States was sparse, but over 900 theropod, sauropod, ankylosaur and
ornithopod fossilized footprints have now been found just a short drive from
the nation's capital, according to new studies.
Stanford and David Weishampel, a Johns Hopkins University paleontologist,
are also planning to publish a journal paper on a new genus and species of
nodosaur, which was an armored, plant-eating dino. "The nodosaur was just a
hatchling," Stanford said. "We can see that a lot of nesting was taking
place in Maryland during the Cretaceous. I even have tracks showing babies
possibly following adults."
