A dinosaur named Thunder thighs

You know what’s awesome? Dinosaurs. You know what’s more awesome than dinosaurs? A dinosaur called Thunder-thighs. Okay, I lied. That’s not its proper name, but its proper name of Brontomerus mcintoshi does take the genus name from the Greek words meaning “thunder” and “thighs”. The discoverers of the dinosaur named it that because of the powerful legs this dinosaur would have had. I’m guessing this dinosaur would have been a great kicker.

Unfortunately, the abstract of the academic article on this new dinosaur does not contain “thunder thighs” in its keywords section. This disappointed me, and it must be fixed. Spoiler it may be, but surely some academics have a sense of humor.
