Idaho’s State Parks are celebrating the birth of a new species of dinosaur.
The discovery was made by researchers from the University of Idaho and the University at Buffalo.
It was found on the edge of the Idaho Dinosaur Center.
It’s the first discovery of a dinosaur at an Idaho State Parks location.
It is believed to be a member of the species, Diplodocus.
It has been described as a ‘large, herbivorous dinosaur’ that lived during the Jurassic period in eastern North America.
Its size and appearance suggests it may have been closely related to Tyrannosaurus rex.
Its new species name is Diplodon and it was named for the Idaho State Park’s Director of Biological Resources, Dr. Peter Parker.
It was the first of four dinosaur species discovered at the park.
It has been named after the state’s Director, Peter Parker, who died in 2017.
He was a prolific writer and author of the classic novel Jurassic Park.
Dr. Parker was born in Boise, Idaho, and raised in Seattle.
He moved to Idaho in 1974.
His books include Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park II.
He also co-authored The Life of Dinosaurs, which is considered to be one of the greatest scientific works of the 20th century.
