New Dinosaur Species Discovered In South Africa 2

silentcoder writes "Scientists at Johannesburg's University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa today announced the discovery of a previously unknown species of dinosaur. The new species was named Aardonyx Celestae from the Afrikaans word for "earth" and the Greek for claw. Earthclaw is particularly interesting as it provides a crucial link between the early dinosaurs and the later giant Sauropods. It was discovered during a routine dig on a farm in the Northern Free State (South Africa's central province). Two other species were discovered on the same site, but their announcement will only happen later after further laboratory testing has been done."
