Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Asia & Africa

Paleontologists are still not certain what type of dinosaur Majungatholus was because they have only found number of skull parts. For many years it was thought to be a relative of Pachycephalosaurus. Recently, scientists have begun to think it was a large meat-eater. The general consensus among researchers is that the quality of the fossil material is too poor to make any certain classification for this dinosaur. Hopefully, future discoveries and research will shed more light on this mysterious dinosaur.

Majungatholus was discovered in Madagascar, an island nation that scientists are finding is rich in fossils. Many new fossil hunting expeditions are turning up lots of new dinosaur discoveries.
