Meet the newest dinosaur. Named the Dracoraptor by the brothers who found its bones in Wales, the meat-eater may have only been the size of the family dog but shares a bloodline with the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex. The Dracoraptor walked the earth approximately 200 million years ago, according to the National Museum of Cardiff, where its bones are on display through December. Read more about the discovery at The Guardian.
