New Dinosaurs from Oz

Three of them, actually. "Scientists have discovered three new species of Australian dinosaur discovered in a prehistoric billabong in Western Queensland." One allosauroid theropod, Australovenator wintonensis, and two titanosaurid sauroopods, Witonotitan wattsi and Diamantinasaurus matildae. You can even read the full paper online (Scott A. Hocknull, Matt A. White, Travis R. Tischler, Alex G. Cook, Naomi D. Calleja, Trish Sloan, David A. Elliott. "New Mid-Cretaceous (Latest Albian) Dinosaurs from Winton, Queensland, Australia"); just follow the link at the bottom on the article.

Wow, that is pretty freaking cool! It's amazing how they keep finding more and more species from so long ago. It must be such a rush for the scientists who uncover the remains and then realize it's something "NEW." Seriously, how awesome must that be?

So cool. And I love the nicknames.
