A scientist at the University of Chicago says he's discovered a new dinosaur. He says the "pegomastax africanus" would have looked a little like a two legged porcupine. He also says the animal was less that two feet long, weighed less than a house cat, and lived about two hundred million years ago. While this scientist was the first to describe the species, it was actually excavated in the 1960's.
