September was an incredible month for paleontologists. Not only were two species found in Utah identified, but a new species was discovered in Spain.
The “Concavenator” is a new breed of theropod that was discovered early last month. This dinosaur was never seen before this discovery and has two distinct features. The first is a hump located at the last vertebra and the second being quill rods on the forearms. This means the species had feathers. Due to this feature, this dinosaur is the largest dinosaur known to have feathers.
The two named species and the new Concavenator are four-legged herbivores.
