    Nicknamed 'Antonio', the newly discovered 13 foot long Tethyshodros insularis was an island dwelling miniature version of the famous Iguanodon.
    According to Fabio M. Dalla Vecchia, who led the project, Antonio is noteworthy on many counts. Dalla Vecchia, a researcher at both the Institut Català de Paleontologia and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, told Discovery News that this dinosaur:

    - is only the second ever dinosaur species named in Italy
    - is the most complete medium to large sized dinosaur ever found in Europe
    - could be one of the most complete dinosaur skeletons in the world
    - shows for the first time what close relatives to duck-billed dinosaurs looked like in detail
    Tethyshodros insularis means "island dweller hadrosaurid dinosaur of Tethys."
