Dinosaur Named After Utah Town
Posted by <> on 4/13/2017 9:44:00 AM.
A dinosaur discovered in Utah is being named after the city that supported the effort to excavate it. Researchers from BYU published a paper this week announcing the discovery of a 32-foot-long dinosaur that they're calling Moabosaurus Utahensis. The researchers say the 125-million-year-old plant-eating dinosaur was named for the city of Moab in part because of the "gold mine" of dinosaur bones found in the area. They also praise the city's support for the decades of effort it took to uncover the dinosaur.
