Medical scanner reveals dino heart

Thursday April 20 by Claudia bourneBBC News Science
The first ever fossilised dinosaur heart has been discovered by scientists in the US. It was found in the remains of a 66 million-year-old creature dug up in South Dakota. The researchers used a computer tomography (CT) scanner to investigate the organ. The study shows the dinosaur, nicknamed "Willo", to have a four-chambered heart more akin to a human or a bird than a lizard.
