Experts discover first Venezuelan dinosaur - via The Anomalist

11th August 2014 

An international team of experts, including scientists from the Natural History Museum and the University of Zurich, have discovered the first new dinosaur species in Venezuela. It's also the first found in the northern part of South America. La Quintasaura - as it's named - was around the size of a small dog, and had a diet of green ferns and the occasional insect.

They're hundreds of millions of years old, yet new species are still being discovered each year.
