Argentina has opened a new huge species of dinosaurs


Some scientists call Lavocatisaurus agrioensis the largest pangolin ever living on Earth of the Photo: pixabay.com B to Argentina was found by bones of a new species of dinosaurs — one adult individual and two cubs. The new look was called by Lavocatisaurus agrioensis. As the Argentina mass media report, the most part of bones of a skull is found: a muzzle, jaws, a large number of teeth, bones which define an orbit of eyes, bones of necks, tails and a back. So full reconstruction of appearance of dinosaurs is possible. José Ignacio Canudo, the researcher from the University of Zaragoza, has reported that the adult individual weighed 80 tons and reached 12 meters in length, cubs — six and seven meters. This look was herbivorous and belonged to family of zauropod which also brachiosaurs and Diplodocuses treat. The keratin covering on the lower part of a skull performed function of the lower teeth when the dinosaur cut branches to eat them. Upper teeth had the form of pencils. The dinosaur lived 110 million years ago in the desert where also small water lagoons occasionally met. At that time South America and Africa haven't finished division into continents yet. The look opened by local and Spanish scientists is announced as the largest of ever living on the planet. The chief researcher of Institute of biology of the sea of the FEB RAS doubts it, the author of one of hypotheses of extinction of dinosaurs Anatoly Drozdov:anatoly Drozdov the chief researcher of Institute of biology of the sea of the FEB RAS "I isn't confident in it. On the fact that the largest, regularly it is discussed. At one time was considered that сейсмозавр is the largest because when he went, allegedly there was almost seismic concussion of the earth — so he was heavy therefore called сейсмозавр. Then some other. There is no confidence any the fact that he is the largest. Most often find absolutely small parts of a skeleton, and under the law of compliance Kyuvye then already complete idea of a skeleton, and then reconstruct completely. And if here such rich find, it is only possible to rejoice and welcome". The team of researchers has published article about opening of a new species of dinosaurs in the scientific magazine Acta Palaeontologica Polonica. As for the record sizes, it was reported about detection in Argentina of bones of the pangolin called by Patagotitan mayorum a year ago. He reached in length of 37 meters, weight was 70 tons. He lived in the Cretaceous 100 million years ago. Besides, in the same 2017 paleontologists from the Queensland university in the Australian Brisbane have reported about detection of the biggest of the known traces of a dinosaur. The print of foot of an ancient being reached 1,75 meters in length. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
