ABSTRACT
The article reports that a group of paleontologists found a skeleton of a big-bellied dinosaur in Southern Utah in 2009. David Gillette's team of paleontologists found the dinosaur bones and named it Nothronychus graffami. Experts say that the dinosaur roamed the deserts of Utah about 93 million years ago and assume the dinosaur was a plant eater with its huge claws which were used for grabbing branches.
