  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

The fossilized remains of a truly ancient dinosaur have been discovered in the north-Mexican state of Coahuila. Remarkably preserved for their estimated age of 72 million years, the 50 vertebrae that were dug up once formed the basis for a 15-foot tail that was attached to a 40-foot dinosaur. Although the researchers from Mexico's National Institute for Anthropology and History aren't yet certain of the species of dino involved, their early findings suggest it might have been a hadrosaur, also known as a duck-billed dinosaur.

"For the first time in the country's history, paleontologists in Mexico have discovered a fully articulated dinosaur tail – and it's a doozy. Believed to have belonged to a hadrosaur living 72-million years ago, the tail's 50 intact vertebrae extend a whopping 16-feet in length, and are in pristine condition."

Well, except for the being dead and fossilized.
