Brontosaurus stomps back on to the dinosaur name board.

Three cheers for Bronto's return and the scientists at the Oxford University.

The Brontosaurus really did exist, scientists have decided, ending a debate which has rumbled on for more than 100 years. The huge dinosaur was discovered in the 1870s, but by 1903 palaeontologists ruled the fossil remains were actually from an Apatosaurus. However a new statistical analysis of the fossils by Oxford University has seen the dinosaur resurrected. Scientists have ruled that it is unique and should have its own genus.
