A tail

Dinosaurs are always an exciting find, but articulated tails like the one recently found in Coahuila, Mexico are particularly rare. The tail is around 5m long and in great shape. It's from a hadrosaur of some sort - duck-billed herbivores abundant in the Upper Cretaceous.

Mexico hasn't thrown up a great many dinosaur fossil sites, so it's likely this place will see a lot more fieldwork in the future. You can read more on the story by clicking here.
