UCL Earth Sciences researcher Dr Mike Taylor is part of an international team that has discovered a new dinosaur named Brontomerus mcintoshi, or "thunder thighs", for its enormous thigh muscles. The new species, discovered in the US, is described in a new paper published in the journal Acta Palaeontologica Polonica.
