Caption: Fossilized dinosaur chest. 3-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest of Willo, the first dinosaur with a fossilized heart. This view, seen from the side, runs from the hind area (left) of the chest, to the neck area (right). The right scapula (collar bone) is the large bone at centre right. The heart is part of the white mass between the scapula and the sternum (breastbone, lower right). Ribs (white) descend from the backbone (across top) to encircle the chest. For a close-up of the heart, see image E446/382. Willo is a Thescelosaurus, a plant-eating dinosaur from 66 million years ago, discovered in the USA in 1993.
