About Issi saaneq

It is a dinosaur that lived about 214 million years ago in what is now Greenland.  It was a medium-sized, long-necked herbivore and a predecessor of the sauropods, the largest land animals ever to live.

The name of the new dinosaur pays tribute to Greenland’s Inuit language and means “cold bone”.
