Meet Zuul, the Destroyer of Shins!
Meet Zuul, a new armoured dinosaur! Illustration by ROM palaeoartist Danielle Dufault.
There's something strange in the neighbourhood - a brand new dinosaur named by ROM palaeontologists! Aptly named for its striking resemblance to the terrifying terror-dog monster from Ghostbusters, Zuul crurivastator is one of the best preserved ankylosaurid, or armoured dinosaur, skeletons ever discovered. Find out what makes this unusual dinosaur so special!
Speaker: Victoria Arbour
Dr. Victoria Arbour is an NSERC postdoctoral fellow at the ROM and the University of Toronto. An expert on armoured dinosaurs, she is part of the team that named Zuul in 2017.
