Zuul: Life of an Armoured Dinosaur
Royal Ontario Museum
Come face to face with Zuul crurivastator (Zool CRUR-uh-vass-TATE-or), an exciting new species of armoured dinosaur recently unveiled by ROM scientists! Aptly named after the fictional monster Zuul in the 1984 film Ghostbusters, crurivastator means ‘destroyer of shins’, for its extraordinary weapon-like tail. From Zuul’s skull to its menacing tail club, this 75-million-year-old, plant-eating dinosaur skeleton is the most complete of its kind, and was found with a diversity of fossilized plants and animals from the same period.
