Move over Rex, there’s a new Tyrannosaurus in town.
A new species of the apex predator was unearthed accidentally in Canada this week, not by an Indiana Jones-style explorer, but by a farmer.
Dubbed the “Reaper of Death,” the dino bones, consisting of a long snout and large steak-knife-like teeth was from the late Cretaceous Period, were found by the farmer who “stumbled across the fossils in 2010 while hiking near Hays, a hamlet in southern Alberta,” according to the BBC.
While this may sound extraordinary, there are several well-known areas in the world where finding dinosaur bones are as common as stepping in a pile of dog poo in New York City. Not kidding!
