DINO-A-DAY #62: Megalosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

NAME: Megalosaurus
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Middle Jurassic and Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: England, 1676
FUN FACT: The first dinosaur to ever be named; Megalosaurus’ original fossil -- a piece of a femur -- was thought at the time to belong to a gigantic human, as described in the bible.
