72-Million-Year-Old Dinosaur Tail Found In Mexican Desert

minty3 (2942557) writes "The 16-foot tail comprised of 50 vertebrae is believed to have belonged to a duck-billed dinosaur known as a hadrosaur. The team, comprised of archaeologists and students, found the fossilized tail completely intact after spending 20 days slowly lifting a rock that lay on top of the dinosaur’s bones. It most likely made up half of the dinosaur’s length."
