In just four years, a University of Portsmouth paleontologist has discovered 48 new species from the age of the dinosaurs, while other scientists took 180 years to identify the same number. Dr Steve Sweetman's discoveries, found hidden in mud on the Isle of Wight, are around 130 million years old and shed valuable light on the poorly understood world in which well known dinosaurs roamed. Steve, a research associate with the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, has found in ancient...

Hypsilophodon, meaning "high-crested tooth", is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Period of what is now Europe. It was discovered in 1849. It was first described as an Iguanodon and not until 1870, when T.H. Huxley studied it, was it described as a Hypsilophodon. Three nearly complete skeletons along with several minor finds have been found on the Isle of Wight and other southern European countries, including England and Portugal. Hypsilophodon was a small bipedal...
