A new sauropod named "Thunder Thighs" weighs in

by Anonymous on Feb. 28th, 2011

There's been a whole lot of buzz on the internet recently about Brontomerus mcintoshi, a giant sauropod dinosaur with unusually large hips (and somewhat derogatory name translation) discovered more than a decade ago in eastern Utah. In this video, British paleontologist Mike Taylor explains the hows and whys of "Thunder Thighs". Hey that rhymes.

You can read even more about Brontomerus over at Taylor's Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week (SVPoW) blog.
