Dinosaur unearthed in Egypt

MANSOURA, Egypt–A skeleton has been unearthed in Egypt’s Western Desert, whose ancient sands long have helped preserve remains.
But unlike most finds, this one isn’t a mummy–it’s a dinosaur.
Researchers from Mansoura University, in the country’s Nile Delta, discovered the new species of long-necked herbivore, which is around the size of a city bus.
And it could be just the tip of the sand dune for other desert dinosaur discoveries.
Hesham Sallam is leader of the excavation team and head of the university’s Center for Vertebrate Paleontology.
Sallam, along with four Egyptian and five American researchers, authored an article in the magazine, “Nature,” announcing the discovery.
