A new milestone in the quest for discovery of dinosaur has recently established when scientists found a new species in Megaraptorid dinosaur category. A recently done scientific research has discovered a new genus of Megaraptorid Dinosaur in Patagonian region of Argentina, which had brought up a new highlight on finding the strange facts regarding this giant thief.
A couple of paleontologists has revealed these remnants and facts about Theropod dinosaur. One is Prof. Philip Currie, who is from the University of Alberta, Canada, and the second one is Dr. Rodolfo Coria, who belongs to the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas, Argentina.
Due to the carnivorous diet, these species are named as megaraptorid dinosaur which literary means “Giant thieves.” This newly discovered species is named as Murusraptor barrosaensis due to its unique skull features and characteristics. However, the mission of unrevealing new enchanting facts regarding dinosaur has boosted up due to the detection of this species. It is expected to help in revealing the evolutionary origins of the megaraptorid species which is yet a mystery for scientists. The Patagonian region of Argentina, where these new facts have discovered has previously renowned for having fossils from the Late Cretaceous era along with a huge number of megaraptorids.
The researchers who found this new genus of Dinosaur have reported that the new species have several identical features with other species, which has not seen earlier among other megaraptorids.
While the analysis of Phylogenetic won’t be able to conclude clearly the evolutionary relationships between the newly discovered species and previously found dinosaur genus, the scientific researchers stated that these revealed fossils would provide fresh anatomical data to determine the time-honored debate “the megaraptorids are a clade of the allosauroid or the coelurosaurid theropods.”
