EARTH Magazine: The lizard king rises
Date:11/11/2013

Alexandria, VA Geoscientists studying paleontology, paleoclimatology and ecology have paid homage to a king of rock, by naming a newly identified extinct lizard species after him. The November issue of EARTH Magazine introduces readers to B. morrisoni, a giant vegetarian lizard thought to live alongside mammals during the Eocene.

Find out which "Lizard King" this ancient lizard king is named after and what gave it the evolutionary edge to successfully live alongside mammals in EARTH Magazine: http://bit.ly/19Xdv9g. Read the entire issue on the EARTH Magazine digital bookstand: http://www.earthmagazine.org/digital, including stories about the oil hazards from ships lost at sea, human diets from 3.5 million years ago, and Wild Wyoming Adventures, from the Travels in Geology segment.
