Dr. Zanno to announce discovery of new carnivorous dinosaur species

Join us Friday, November 22 at 10:00am in the Daily Planet Theater for a short presentation from Dr. Lindsay Zanno, who will be announcing the discovery of a new species of carnivorous dinosaur, one of the three largest predators ever found in North America. The new species is only the second carcharodontosaur ever discovered in North America, and the first to be discovered here in 63 years (the other was the Acrocanthosaurus, the dinosaur featured in the Museum’s Terror of the South exhibit). Dr. Zanno’s research comes out in the journal Nature Communications on Friday, November 22.
