New Dinosaur Dragon: ‘Dracorex Hogwartsia’

I kid you not. It seems the bones of this dinosaur resembled a dragon sufficiently that the scientists involved named it

Dracorex hogwartsia in honor of children’s author J.K. Rowling. “The shape of the dinosaur’s skull, with its long muzzle, bizarre knobs and horns, surprised the scientists,” she said. “But the skull looks strangely familiar to anyone who has studied dragons! Dracorex has a remarkable resemblance to the dragons of ancient China and medieval Europe.”

(H/T Nicole!)

    I read the article linked, showing a photo of the skeleton. Fascinating. Dragon lore came from something, spread as it is through isolated ancient peoples. This gives understanding of their intepretations and embroidery upon thereof.

    I’d put Luscious Badboy against a dragon any day, though…
