    Hey people! Guess what? There is a new meat eating dinosaur species that's been recently discovered in North Africa, and it's named after the Dark Lord Sauron from J.R.R. Tolkien's three-volume epic fantasy masterwork The Lord of the Rings! I can't believe it! And oh! It is called "Sauroniops" meaning "eye or face of Sauron". Read more about this all new predatory dinosaur species named after the Eye who ruled Mordor and the orcs here:

    Also, what's the difference between the newly discovered carnivorous dinosaur Sauroniops and the Dark Lord Sauron himself, aka The Eye?

      Too funny. At least it will make it easy for me to memorize this new species.

          Uh..... Isn't that extremely redundant, naming a dinoSAUR SAURon? That's rather like saying "the lizardbreath lizard" or "the hawk-faced hawk".

            Fun fact: Birds are dinosaurs too.
