With its large eyes and slanted teeth, Daemonosaurus chauliodus may look like any other of its prehistoric contemporaries.
But this new species of dinosaur – described as having large eyes, buck teeth and being the same size as a large dog – has caused quite a stir in archaeological circles.
The fossil remains of the Daemonosaurus were discovered in New Mexico at a renowned dinosaur site – and it is thought the find could fill in the gaps of an incomplete period of prehistoric evolution.
Daemonosaurus, which ate meat, walked on two legs and has unusually large eyes, dates back to a time early in the dinosaurs’ reign during the Triassic Period around 205million years ago.
