Thanos gets a new species of Dinosaur named after Him.

With the release “Avengers: Infinity war”, the big bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thanos, has never been more popular. The Mad Titan has become so popular that he has recently had a species of dinosaur named after him. The species is named Thanos  simonattoi. It was a carnivorous dinosaur in Brazil during the Cretaceous Period. The species discovery and naming was announced in a science journal, Historical Biology.  A sample from the journal’s abstract states:

In the present contribution, we describe a new abelisaurid (Thanos simonattoi, gen. et sp. nov.) from the São José do Rio Preto Formation, Bauru Group, Brazil (Upper Cretaceous). Thanos differs from other theropods by having a well-developed keel becoming wider and deeper posteriorly on the ventral surface; two lateral small foramina separated by a relative wide wall on each lateral surface of the centrum, and well-developed and deep prezygapophyseal spinodiapophyseal fossae.
