“A previously unknown species of plant-eating dinosaur roamed on an island off the south coast of England around 125 million years ago, new research has found.

The dinosaur would have been the size of a large American bison and weighed around a ton, according to Jeremy Lockwood, a doctoral researcher at the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom and lead author of a study on the prehistoric creature.

Fossilized footprints found near the skeleton show the dinosaur was probably a herding animal, Lockwood said, adding: ‘Possibly large herds of these dinosaurs may have been thundering around if spooked by predators on the floodplains over 120 million years ago.'”
