ANOTHER MASS GRAVE DISCOVERED

1 October 2014

… though I don’t think it was any of the recent narco cartels or political violence that was responsible:

German and Mexican scientists have discovered world’s largest concentration of dinosaur remains in Mexico’s Chihuahuan Desert, Der Spiegel reports. Palaeontologists found the remains of 14 dinosaurs on a plot size of 50 to 200 meters.

Skeletons of 15 other animals were also discovered within a few kilometers of the spot – including crocodiles, turtles and early mammals.

“There is a huge delta here with several rivers flowing into the Gulf of Mexico,” palaeontologist Eberhard Frey from the natural history Museum in Karlsruhe, Germany, said. “There was a very active ecosystem. We have not only found dinosaur bones, but also four different species of turtles, remains of very small crocodiles and teeth of early mammals.”
