Most extremely large dinosaur species discovered in Antarctica

Researchers have discovered a new kind and species of dinosaur in Antarctica, which belongs to the early on Jurassic period. They call this gigantic plant eating ancient sauropodomorph Glacialisaurus hammeri, who lived about hundred and ninety million years before.

The purpose of the new dinosaur find is base on incomplete foot, leg and ankle bones found on Mt. Kirkpatrick near the Beardmore Glacier in Antarctica at a height of over 13,000 feet. The new invention of a possible sauropod at approximately the same location in Antarctica lends added proof to the theory that the first sauropods coexisted with their basal sauropodomorph cousins, as well as Glacialisaurus hammeri, for the duration of the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic.

A glance at a Dinosaur Mummy

The world of Sixty five million years ago is full of mystery, but buried in a distant corner of North Dakota was a surprisingly well preserved dinosaur with fossilized skin, ligaments in addition to tendons. You can yet see scales on its surface. The specimen bowed out to be a duck billed plant eater name as hadrosaur. The skin had not misshapen in around the bone, and then I know to we had a 3-D dinosaur mummy. Outline in those scales also imply the hadrosaur had line along its tail, possibly to blend with the foliage. "This perhaps indicates that we had approximately a lined hide pattern on some parts of our animal is really thrilling."
