Introducing the Sarahsaurus

Introducing the Sarahsaurus

Sarah Butler slowly walks across the University of Texas' paleontology lab, a 190-million-year-old dinosaur bone firmly in her hands. "I'll try not to trip and fall and break it," Butler says.

"If you do, we can fix it," answers Tim Rowe, director of the UT Vertebrate Paleontology Laboratory. "That's why God invented Super Glue."

This isn't just any old dinosaur bone. It's a newly identified species, a dinosaur that offers new clues about how its brethren evolved.

It was discovered by Rowe. And this month, the dinosaur, which was named after Butler, is being introduced to the world in scientific journals across the world.

Meet Sarahsaurus.
