Peter Rose (’04), a Geological Sciences alumnus and student of Louis Jacobs, has identified bones found on a ranch near Glen Rose, Texas, during the 1990s as a previously unknown species, which he has named Paluxysaurus jonesii. A previous, incomplete examination of the bones identified them as those of a pleurocoelus, resulting in the species being named the Texas state dinosaur in 1997. The official designation now may be reassigned to the paluxysaurus. Read more from The Dallas Morning News.
