It’s been just revealed that a brand new discovery made by paleontologists managed to blow their minds and question what they used to know. Their assumptions have been shaken to the core.
A newly discovered dinosaur skull baffles experts
Fox News revealed that a dinosaur skull that has just been discovered managed to shatter the idea that all dinosaurs had symmetrical faces.
The website reveals the fact that the fossilized skull of the Styracosaurus has been recently unearthed, and it seems that it managed to shock experts. They were surprised that it had horns that were not symmetrical.
“When parts of one side of the skull were missing, paleontologists have assumed that the missing side was symmetrical to the one that was preserved,” stated Scott Persons, the expert who discovered the skull. “Turns out, it isn’t necessarily,” he continued in a statement.
“Today, deer often have left and right antlers that are different in terms of their branching patterns. Hannah shows dramatically that dinosaurs could be the same way,” Persons added. He is also one of the study’s co-authors.
This discovery has been made in the Dinosaur Provincial Park, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, back in 2915. It’s been also named Hannah, just like Persons’ dog.
