Australian Scientists Discover New Dinosaur Species - The Kunbarrasaurus

Scientists have discovered a new species of dinosaur that roamed around Australia - a heavily-armoured sheep-sized creature with a parrot-like beak. The dinosaur, named Kunbarrasaurus, was identified following a 3D construction of the creature, whose remains were dug up in the outback in 1989.

The skeleton was one of the most complete set of dinosaur remains found in Australia and one of the world's best-preserved fossils of an ankylosaur, a four-legged, herbivorous creature which had bones in its skin and was closely related to stegosaurs.
