The Punkosaur, small and Bristly, South Africa.

This stylish dinosaur predated the punk movement by 200 million years. Pegomastax africanus had sharp bristles and stabbing, self-sharpening fangs.
Its remains were chipped out of red rock from South Africa.
The 2-foot-long dino weighed less than a modern house cat in the flesh. But Paul Sereno, a paleontologist and professor at the University of Chicago, believes it was a plucky survivor.
“I think the bristles would have made it look at least a little bigger than it was — perhaps they could poke out more strongly when excited,” he said.
