Fossil dug up in Canyonlands NP may be previously unknown species of dinosaur

A new species of reptile may have been found deep in the back country of southeast Utah’s Canyonlands National Park.

The fossil is “a rare ~290 million year old Permian-aged skeleton” and likely belonged to a “type of early reptile relative,” experts say. The Permian Period ended with “the most devastating incidents of mass extinction in Earth’s history,” the National Park Service says.
