BUENOS AIRES (Noor e Nazar News) - Scientists have uncovered in Argentina the remaining parts of a formerly obscure types of meat-eating dinosaur that lived around 70 million years prior that had diminutive arms and may have utilized its strong head to smash its prey.


The fossil skull of the Cretaceous Period dinosaur, named Guemesia ochoai, was found in Argentina's northwestern Salta region. The specialists said it probably has a place with a flesh eating gathering of dinosaurs called abelisaurs, which strolled on two legs and had just stub-like arms, considerably more limited than those of North America's Tyrannosaurus rex.


The short arms might have constrained Guemesia to depend on its strong skull and jaws, the analysts said.


"It's so interesting thus not the same as other savage dinosaurs, which permits us to comprehend that we're managing an absolutely new animal types," Federico Agnolin, lead creator of a review on the dinosaur distributed in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology and an analyst with Argentine public science board CONICET, told Reuters.


The creature, conceivable an adolescent, lived only a couple million years before a space rock sway at what is presently Mexico's Yucatan landmass cleared out around 3/4 of Earth's species including the dinosaurs around 66 millions years prior.


Researchers accept abelisaurs wandered what is presently Africa, South America and India, and a few dozen examples have recently been dove up in Argentina - virtually every one of them in southern Patagonia, a long way from the site of Guemesia's disclosure.


"We realize it had an extremely sharp feeling of smell and was silly," said Agnolin, taking note of that it would have strolled upstanding on its enormous feet, with its strong skull driving the way.


"A few researchers imagine that could mean the creature chased its prey by accusing them of its head," Agnolin added.

The disclosure adds to Argentina's standing as a secret stash of fossils of dinosaurs and other ancient animals.


Guemesia takes its name from Argentine freedom legend Martin Miguel de Guemes and Javier Ochoa, a gallery laborer who made the revelation.
