About Abydosaurus mcintoshi:
Abydosaurus was recently discovered in the Cedar Mountain Formation. A plant-eating sauropod (long-necked dinosaur) with narrow teeth, Abydosaurus lived during the Cretaceous, which makes making it the most recent Dinosaur National Monument superstar in terms of geologic time.
Abydosaurusrefers to the town of Abydos, the Greek name for what is now El Araba el Madfuna. Just as the goddess Osiris overlooked the Nile River there, Abydosaurus was found overlooking the Green River at Dinosaur. Paleontologist Jack McIntosh is honored by the species name.
