New Dinosaurs Found

It's scarier than Jurassic Park: Australian paleontologists say they have found three new dinosaur species dating back 100 million years—a discovery they say is important to understanding prehistoric life in Australia. One species, Australovenator wintonesis, is a predator with three large claws on each hand, which, according to a Queensland paleontologist, was the "cheetah of his time," and bigger and scarier than the velociraptor from the Jurassic Park movies. The other two dinosaurs were four-legged herbivores, one resembling a giraffe, and the other a hippopotamus.
