Scientists discover dinosaur-vampire

Paleontologists have said they have found a new species of dinosaurs: he lived on Earth about 200 million years ago and, according to their description, looked like a "parrot-vampire." The remains of crustaceans were found in the territory of another JAR 60-ies of the last century, but until today have not been formally classified.

The animal had huge tusks length 2.5 cm to frighten enemies and attracted relatives during mating. Dinosaur is smallish, with a narrow snout and well-developed jaws that resemble a parrot beak. Scientists have named it Pegomastax africanus, which means "Great jaws of Africa."
