Jurassic Park?: A New Dinosaur Was Just Discovered in Missouri
Dinosaurs are always in the last place you look. This is a great example. One of these extinct creatures was just discovered in the state that specializes in showing stuff: Missouri.
Kudos to KDVR on this find of the dino kind. They report that paleontologist Guy Darrough discovered a Parrosaurus Missouriensis. What's a Parrosaurus Missouriensis? I'm glad you asked. I have absolutely no idea because it's a brand new dinosaur not previously known. There is a Wikipedia page devoted to it though. Kind of. It's Hypsibema Missouriensis which was renamed Parrosaurus Missouriensis.
I'll simplify it. In its most basic form, it's a plant-eating dinosaur that looks kind of like a really scaley duck.
My first question is if Missouri will now create a Jurassic Park like the one in the movie. C'mon, you know you'd visit. Pro Tip: avoid the automated Jeeps.
It's a fascinating find in a state full of interesting history. Dinosaurs in Missouri...who knew?
