Scientists Make Several New Dinosaur Finds

Last month, fossil-hunters in Argentina reported the discovery of the earliest and most complete example of a dromaeosaurid known. The dromaeosaurid was a small dinosaur related to today's birds. Last week researchers announced the discovery of a fossil crocodile-like animal with the head that looks more like a Tyrannosaurus.
