Dinosaur Bone Found in Southern Sweden

Fossil hunters have found what they suspect is a small dinosaur bone in the southern province of Skåne. The finger bone is more than 80 million years old.

Dinosaur fossils are rarely found in Sweden because glaciers once swept over Scandinavia dragging sediment with them. At the site researchers also found veterbrae and teeth from prehistoric sharks and reptiles.
