    Talos, new troodontid

    I am loving the name; I used to be scared of Talos from Jason and the Argonauts as a kid :D

    The new dinosaur is a troodontid, smaller than Troodon, that lived during the late Cretaceous in Utah, alongside Teratophoneus, Utahceratops and Kosmoceratops.

    It is so named because the holotype seemingly succumbed to a foot injury, like the automaton Talos from Greek mythology.
