Newly Discovered Dinosaur Given “Ghostbusters” Inspired Name

From Bloody Disgusting

Introducing “Zuul crurivastator,” a new species of ankylosaur that was discovered by scientists from the Royal Ontario Museum. The well-preserved skeleton of the 75-million-year-old species, including the skull, tail and armor, was discovered in Montana’s Judith River Formation, buried under metres of rock. Given how much of the dinosaur was found, scientists were able to piece together what it probably looked like when it was alive. And when the images were drawn up, one Ghostbusters fan on the team noted how similar it looked to the demon dog known as Zuul.
