What a temptation. Dinosaur bone researcher Anusuya Chinsamy-Turan from South Africa’s University of Cape Town – the southern-most university on the continent – let slip that there will soon be another dinosaur named in South Africa’s isiXhosa language, commonly used in the region that the fossils were found.
The baby dinosaurs are listed in her book on Famous Dinosaurs of Africa as a mystery, but a peer-reviewed journal is soon to reveal all. Both dinosaurs and astronomy were listed at the conference as examples of cool science which can trigger all sorts of useful developments by triggering latent curiosity about the continent on which we live.
