New Dinosaur Species Discovered in Brazil.

Brazilian paleontologists have discovered a new species of dinosaur called the Maxakalisaurus topai:

The name of the species, Maxakalisaurus topai, derives from an Indian tribe, Maxakali, which lives in the area. Topa is a divinity that the tribe worships. It is a custom in Brazil to give native Indian names to paleontological finds.
