The fossil bones of a 100 million-year-old dinosaur discovered at a shopping center construction site will be studied and identified by paleontologists at Southern Methodist University's Shuler Museum of Paleontology. The bones were discovered by a Dallas Zoo employee and his young son. The fossils have been transported to SMU's Shuler research museum in the Roy M. Huffington Department of Earth Sciences. The discovery of the bones, believed to be from the family of armored dinosaurs called nodasuaridae, was covered by science journalist Lauren Silverman, reporting for KERA public radio.
