SANTIAGO, Chile (KGO) -- A lot of kids love dinosaurs. But not many actually get to discover a whole new dinosaur species.
Researchers in Santiago, Chile unveiled the bones of a Jurassic-era dinosaur this week. It's called a Chilesaurus in honor of the country where it was found and the 7-year-old boy who discovered it.
Diego Suarez" picked up the bones while out for a hike with his family.
The dinosaur has three thick, short fingers, and two claws. It also has leaf-shaped teeth, which means it was a plant eater.
Paleontologists estimate it roamed the earth about 150 million years ago.
