Meet Skybalonyx skapter, the newest prehistoric reptile to be found in Arizona

Posted by in category: futurism

A new species of prehistoric reptile has apparently been discovered within the depths of the Petrified Forest National Park in northeastern Arizona.

Named Skybalonyx skapter, the fossilized remains are believed to be a new species of drepanosaur, a reported 220-million-year-old burrowing reptile that potentially looked like a combination of an anteater and chameleon, the Petrified Forest National Park said Tuesday in a news release.

Skybalonyx skapter, though, may have looked even more peculiar, the release said.
