"Thunder Thighs" The Dinosaur

Yeah - WE SAID IT!!!

A newfound dinosaur species that use its thighs to kick predators likely had a bad temper to boot!

The 46-foot-long Brontomerus mcintoshi had an immense blade on its hipbones where strong muscles would have attached, according to a new study.

Brontomerus—"thunder thighs" in Greek—may have even attacked like a modern-day chicken, relentlessly kicking and stomping pursuers to death.

The team suspects the dinosaur—a type of sauropod, or plant-eating, four-legged lumberer—used its massive legs to either maneuver over hilly ground or deliver "good, hard" kicks to predators.

Wedel, assistant professor of anatomy at Western University of Health Sciences said,

"I could only imagine how ill-tempered these sauropods would have been. You've got a little brain, you're permanently paranoid about all these meat-eaters around, and you're trying to protect your young."

Sounds like humans and dinos are more closely related than we thought….
