Fossil sheds light on 'Jurassic Park' dinosaurs
#1
The fossil of a dinosaur that has been languishing in a museum for decades has been re-examined - and it turns out to be that of a new species. brachiosaurus, depicted in Jurassic Park, now has an early relative, providing clues to the evolution of some of the biggest creatures on Earth.
Scientists say the plant-eating dinosaur was longer than a double-decker bus and weighed 15,000kg.
Its remains were found in the 1930s in the Jura region of France.
Since then it has been somewhat over-looked, spending most of that time in storage crates in the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.
