New Fanged Dinosaur Discovered

Porcupine quills, big fangs, and a parrot-like beak are only three of the strange qualities that this newly discovered plant-eating dinosaur, known as the Pegomastax africanus, possesses.

This tiny Dino, measuring in at about 2 feet tall, is a newly discovered species of heterodontosaur. It is about the size of a housecat and used its giant fangs for self-defense and for attracting mates.

For more on this discovery, and to check out the making of this Dinosaur model, visit National Geographic.
