20 ‘duckbill’ dinosaurs discovered in Cataluna

By Dana Ferguson

A TEAM of paleontologists has discovered the remains of 20 dinosaurs at an excavation site.

In earlier excavations paleontologists at the Catalan Institute of Paleontology (ICP) had found 200 similar hadrosaur fossils, more commonly known as duckbills, at the site in Espinau, Cataluna.

The remains are said to be over 70 million years old.

The paleontologists ended their excavation on September 21, several days later than planned, because they wanted to get to as many fossils as possible during their stay.

They have not said whether or not the ICP plans to excavate further.
