Dinosaur mass grave discovered

Dinosaur mass grave discovered. CNN is reporting this story about the discovery of a Plateosaurus mass grave recently found in Europe.

The article reports, "An amateur paleontologist in Switzerland may have unearthed Europe's largest dinosaur mass grave after he dug up the remains of two Plateosaurus. The dinosaurs' bones came to light during house-building in the village of Frick, near the German border."

The Plateosaurus lived in the late Triassic period in what is now Europe. They had a small skull on a long neck, sharp teeth, and powerful limbs.

Martin Sander, a dinosaur paleontologist at the university of Bonn in Germany, estimates that there may be up to a hundred more Plateosaurus buried at the site.
