There are at least 7 new dinosaur fossils, one of which is practically complete: discovered near Trieste, in the Villaggio del Pescatore site, the most important Italian paleontological site. An international research group coordinated by Federico Fanti dell 'University of Bologna on Scientific Reports.
"Already 30 years ago - Fanti told ANSA - the site of the Fisherman's Village had brought to light an extraordinary fossil rest, a practically complete individual of Tethyshadros insularis. But it was a single find like all the other facts on the Italian territory. Now we have an entire field for the first time, a site where we have many individuals and we can dig by analyzing and comparing the remains ".
The area, a former limestone quarry, has brought to light various remains, of a number between 7 and 11 individuals, one of which is particularly complete that the researchers have renamed Bruno.
Comparing the new remains with those of the first dinosaur Antonio it was also understood that the first remains actually belonged to a young individual and not to a 'dwarf' species, typical of the islands, as previously believed.
