DID YOU KNOW?
This isn’t the first time the dinosaurs have visited Yorkshire!
In fact, in 2015 a fossil bone from Britain’s oldest sauropod dinosaur was discovered on a beach near Whitby, after it fell from a cliff face on the North Yorkshire coast.
The vertebra was dated to around 176 million years old, roughly from the Middle Jurassic period, after being tested by scientists at the University of Manchester.
Sauropods some of the largest plant-eating dinosaurs to have walked on Earth, just like our Gertrude here! Gertrude, like most sauropods, walks on all fours with a large body and incredibly long necks!
“It was a splendid surprise to come face-to-face with a fossil vertebra from the Jurassic rocks of Yorkshire that was clearly from a sauropod dinosaur. This fossil offers the earliest ‘body fossil’ evidence for this important group of dinosaurs in the United Kingdom but it is impossible to define a new species based upon this single bone.” Says Professor Phil Manning, who studied the fossil with his team.
Could it have been from Gertrude’s cousin? Either way, the dinosaur has been nicknamed Alan, after the man who found the fossil. Welcome to the family Alan!
