"They estimate that meat-munching "Wall Raptor" was young when it died, but the well-preserved remains of the dinosaur indicate that it still grew to at least 21 feet."

Or a sex starved 50 yearold woman who has kept herself reasonably fit

I didn't know that dinosaurs could have hollow bones like a flying reptile.  Wouldn't this mean they are more pterosaur than dinosaur?

Pterasaurs are more like flying reptiles while dinosaurs (therepod-classes) are more like flightless birds.

I admit that I am a late comer to liking the raptors due to the overhype of the Jurassic park movies but they have grown on me over the years. I think it's quite cool they have found another mega raptor.

Megaraptors aren't closely related to Velociraptor and its kin (the dromaeosaurs). They are closer to Allosaurus and Giganotosaurus.

Yes, but I am still excited over the new find.

How is the relation determined?

Cladistic analyses; using computer software to match similar traits of the bones of dinosaurs.
