Zuul crurivastator

Dinosaurs meet Ghostbusters - what not to like?

Judy Hible has brought THIS ARTICLE to my attention. Zuul crurivastator is reported as having a remarkable similarity to monster from the 1984 film Ghostbusters. Not having seen the film I cannot comment. (I lead a very sheltered life.) But the discoverers see the resemblance and the name Zuul comes from the film.

Zuul crurivastator, (which translates as Zuul destroyer of shins) left, alongside Zuul the Gatekeeper of Ghostbusters fame. (I find the resemblance unconvincing.)

The Guardian article gives a lot of information. The original, academic, article can be found HERE and that gives a HUGE amount of information.
