A new hadrosaur species was discovered in Mexico City. The scientist named the new creature Velafrons coahuilensis. Its name means “forehead with sails” due to its obvious skull features (vela=sails, frons=forhead).

The sedimentary layers in which the remains of the animal were buried were thick and their characteristics indicate something of the enormous magnitude of watery catastrophe (flood geology).
