Discovery of unknown dinosaur residue in Argentina
Researchers discovered the remnants of an unknown dinosaur in Argentina and these species scare predators with long thorns on their back, according to the Phys.org site.
The site indicated that the skeleton of the head and neck of the dinosaur dinosaurs that lived about 140 million years ago, was found in Argentine Patagonia. A copy of the discovery was presented at the Scientific and Cultural Center in Buenos Aires. The new species of dinosaurs was called the name Bajadasaurus Pronuspinax.
One of the authors of this study, Pablo Galina, said: “We assume that these long and steep thorns — too long and thin — on the back and neck of Bajadasaurus, as well as on the amargosaurus of Cazaui species, were scaring the predators.”
The world also pointed out that thorns can be an open bone structure or be covered with skin. In addition, it can have a keratin sheath, like many centuries of mammals. “Perhaps, in the event of an attack or attack from other animals, it is easily broken,” the researcher noted.
The experts also suggest that the thorns had a role in regulating the body temperature of the animal and making it more attractive to the opposite sex.
The results of the study were published in the journal Scientific Reports.
