Dinosaur of the day Atlascopcosaurus, an Early Cretaceous iguanodont from southern Australia.

We also interviewed Michael D'Emic, Assistant Professor of Biology at Adelphi University. He has studied dinosaur body size evolution, bone tissues, and teeth. We discuss the crazy number of teeth that Majungasaurus grew, Allosaurus growth variation, why some Titanosaurs had osteoderms, and a lot more. Follow him on Twitter @astrophocaudia
