All rights reserved. A newfound dinosaur species that used its "exceptionally powerful" thighs to kick predators likely had a bad temper to boot, one expert says.
The foot-long meter-long Brontomerus mcintoshi had an immense blade on its hipbones where strong muscles would have attached, according to a new study. The team suspects the dinosaur—a type of sauropod, or plant-eating, four-legged lumberer—used its massive legs to either maneuver over hilly ground or deliver "good, hard" kicks to predators, said Wedel, assistant professor of anatomy at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California.
Brontomerus —"thunder thighs" in Greek—may have even attacked like a modern-day chicken, relentlessly kicking and stomping pursuers to death, he added.
In both cases, "you've got a little brain, you're permanently paranoid about all these meat-eaters around, and you're trying to protect your young. Thunder thighs' bones were first found in , when scientists rescued two partial skeletons of the then unidentified dinosaur from a fossil quarry that had otherwise been looted in eastern Utah. When Wedel and colleagues examined the bones in , they realized they'd found a new species—and an "extreme" one at that, Wedel said.
For instance, the shapes of the newfound species' bones showed it had the largest leg muscles of any sauropod yet found.
