In addition to having a state bird, a state motto and a state garbage dump (I kid! NEW JERSEY!), New Jersey also has one very special thing: s state dinosaur. Yes, that’s right — the tiny coastal state elected the tree-eating herbivore Hadrosaurus foulkii as its state dinosaur in the early ’90s. Sadly, the state dinosaur trend didn’t really pick up, and only four other states claim official dino reps — Missouri, Maryland, Wyoming and Texas (surprise, surprise). Guh, I want one, too. [Maxim]

Although it will take a year to fully uncover the discoveries, there are already books and a National Geographic kids show in the works. As far as the runway goes, with vintage being so popular, we’re sure this 65 million-year old dino print will be all the rage! [CNN]
