Colorado Springs has a dinosaur to call its own, a beast that's never been found anywhere else in the world. Scientists planned to announce Saturday at Garden of the Gods that century-old assumptions about a dinosaur skull found in the park in the late 1800s are wrong. The fossils don't belong to the type of dinosaur -- the camptosaurus -- that early bone hunters thought it did. It seems the skull fragments belong to a dino that's new to science, a conclusion that sent ripples through the...

Megalaosaurus, meaning “Great Lizard”, from Greek megalo, meaning ‘big’ or ‘tall’ and sauros, meaning “lizard”, is a genus of large and meat-eating theropod dinosaurs of the Middle Jurassic period of Europe. It’s significant as the first genus of dinosaur, outside of birds, to be described and named. Megalosaurus might have been the first dinosaur to be described in scientific literature. Part of a bone was recovered from a limestone quarry at Cornwell by Chipping Norton,...

Iguanodon, meaning “Iguana tooth,” is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur known from the Kimmeridgian age of the Late Jurassic Period to the Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous Period. It lived in Asia, Europe and North America. Research in the early 2000s suggests however that only one species, I. bernissartensis, is well-substantiated, and lived during the Early Cretaceous Period in Europe. It was first discovered in 1822 and described three years later by English geologist Gideon...

Zalmoxes, named after the Dacian deity Zalmoxis, is a genus of dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. This dinosaur is classified as a rhabdodontid iguanodont. Zalmoxes is a herbivorous dinosaur. The type species is Z. robustus. A second described species is Z. shqiperorum. Both species were found in Romania. Additional fossils of this genus were found in Austria, and was formerly described as Mochlodon suessi. Z. robustus was 7 to 10 feet long. Z. shqiperorum was 13 to 15 feet...

Mantellisaurus is a genus of dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Period and lived in what is now England. It was discovered by Reginald Hooley in 1917 and was formerly known as a species of Iguanodon, but eventually given its own genus by Gregory Paul in 2007. Paul stated that it was more closely related to Ouranosaurus than Iguanodon. It is known from many partial and nearly complete skeletons. The genus name honors Gideon Mantell, the discoverer of the Iguanodon. Mantellisaurus was smaller...

Lanzhousaurus is a genus of dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous Period. It was discovered in the Gansu region of China in 2005. The type species, L. magnidens, was described based on partial skeletal remains. Lanzhousaurus had very huge teeth, and perhaps the largest of any herbivorous animal ever found. This indicates that it was an iguanodont dinosaur. The jawbone, which was over 40 inches long, suggests that this specimen was a very large animal. Photo Copyright and Credit
