The ultimate guide to the world’s best dinosaur parks

JERUSALEM — When a young boy discovered a dinosaur at a park in Germany, he was surprised to find it had been taken by the German government, which wanted to use the fossilized dinosaur to prove that dinosaurs lived in the area.

“That was the biggest surprise of my life,” said Jens Jorgensen, now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania’s Museum of Paleontology.

The discovery of the skeleton of the long-necked carnivorous dinosaur, called Eosuchus rufifer, sparked decades of research and led to a series of spectacular discoveries at parks around the world.

The species was the largest terrestrial carnivore in the world and was considered a national treasure.

The discovery of Eoschatonosaurus, the largest carnivore to ever walk the Earth, was one of the most important events in dinosaur history.

“We knew about the species for so long, and then it was just this little surprise and a discovery,” Jorgenson said.

“And now, suddenly, it’s one of our favorite discoveries.”

Researchers found the skeleton during the reconstruction of a dinosaur skeleton, or reconstructions, of bones from Eoschtronosaurus, a massive herbivore that lived in North America about 150 million years ago.

Eosochatonosaurids were probably carnivores and could have been a distinct species from the larger Tyrannosaurus rex that lived on land at that time.

The two dinosaurs were separated by the river Styx in northern Germany.

“It was like finding a needle in a haystack,” Jens said.

The Eoschiontosaurus fossil, which Jorgersen said was more than a century old, was part of a series that researchers had made of nearly 600 fossils collected by the museum’s Paleontological Collections.

Jorgensen’s team was also able to reconstruct the fossil, called Stegosaurus, and to analyze the bones to try to determine how it was made.

The bones were analyzed in detail and compared to a number of other fossilized animals, including the first dinosaur.

“If we could use that as a baseline, we could look at the relative proportions and make sure that this is a dinosaur that we can call a dinosaur,” Josgen said.

“And this is an important species.”

Jorgenson’s team then went on to look at other fossils from other dinosaurs, and found a number that suggested they had stumbled on a new species.

“So it’s kind of like the same thing as what we were doing before, but it was really different,” Joss said.

Josgen, Jorginger and colleagues are currently examining more than 1,300 dinosaur specimens from around the globe.

The results of that work will be published in the April issue of the journal Nature.
