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.
