MY FAVOURITE DINOSAUR GOES TO THE ALGARVE

February 2007

Those of you who’ve been to my office will know that I have a Stegosaur thing. These animals have hitherto been found only in North America. (Similarly looking plated Kentrosaurus have been found in China, but they aren’t quite the same.) This article from Naturwissenschaften reports the discovery of a Stegosaur skeleton on a beach in Portugal, dating back to around 150 myr. You or your institution will probably need a subscription to get past the abstract.
