Photo: Dinosaur Lost World Found in Texas City



Ancient crocodile relatives and a Protohadros, an early duck-billed dinosaur, prowl Arlington, Texas, circa 95 million years ago in an artist's conception.

Fossil discoveries at the urban site also include sharks, fish, turtles, plants, and unnamed new species of theropod—a member of the dinosaur genus that includes T. rex, according to a March 17, 2009, presentation at a Geological Society of America meeting.
