    Hunting dinosaurs

    How many people can claim they’ve discovered a new dinosaur species?

    U of L alumna Wendy Sloboda (BA ’01) can, and the wendiceratops pinhornensis is named in her honour. From Warner, Alta., Wendy is a legendary dinosaur hunter. This past summer, she made international headlines when the journal article on the wendiceratops was released and the new dinosaur was introduced to the world. Estimated to have lived 79 million years ago, wendiceratops is credited with increasing scientists’ understanding of skull ornamentation evolution in the horned dinosaur. “It is important because it ties old and new horned dinosaurs together, kind of like a missing link,” she explains.

    Wendy has travelled the world on palaeontological expeditions, and in 2016, she will return to Greenland.

It is pretty special and exciting.
