The search never stops when it comes to dinosaurs. For years, paleontologists have dug deep into the earth to uncover new fossils, and, possibly, new species. In the latest issue of Nature Communications, a new dinasaur was detailed.

Named Siats meekerorum, a reference to a mythological monster  of the Ute Native American people, the dinosaur walked the earth 100 million years ago in the Cedar Mountain Formation in Utah.

Siats meekerorum was over 30 feet long and weighed more than four tons. Researchers said that the dinosaur is a first of its kind in North America and is second only to the apex predator, T. rex. It belonged to the predatory group of carchardontosaurian theropods.
