Partial skeleton of a previously unknown medium-sized theropod dinosaur found in Siberia

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Study of a partial skeleton found embedded in a rock has resulted in the discovery of a new species of dinosaur. Using a variety of technology and techniques, researchers affiliated with several institutions in the Russian Federation found that the fossil once belonged to a previously unknown dinosaur they have named Kiyacursor longipes.

The dinosaur was a noasaurid ceratosaur, a group of bipedal, non-avian swift runners with two small legs that would have been tucked up at the top. The finding, they note, extends the range of Ceratosauria in Asia by approximately 40 million years.
