One sick dinosaur!

Yeah, I know, I promised not to repeat each and every new dinosaur find and story. But for the English-speaking world I believe I am before the wave, not after on this one. My colleagues Oliver Hampe and Florian Witzmann found the oldest proof of viral disease – on the bones of a poor little Dysalotosaurus from Tendaguru!

I’m glad to see that the old Tendaguru material holds interesting discoveries for those who come looking – and I know of more to come. Yeah, teasing you, how mean 😉
