MORE FACTS ABOUT LEAST KNOWN DINO


anatosaurus_rare_dino

Introduction

  

  Knowing about the unknown things is the best fun part of life.One such info is Dinosaurs.They come into view as large range of adaptations to a wide range of environment, and as a aconsequence of that,they became the most successful land animals of all time.They dominated the terrestrial ecosystem for over 100-million years.

Dinosaurs are found during the early interval of time known as the Mesozoic Era, which began 250 million years ago and ended 65 million years ago. The Mesozoic is further subdivided into three periods, the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. Fossils,the dead remains of the past show that the dinosaurs originated during the mid to Late Triassic, perhaps 230-235 million years ago, and they remained the dominant land animals for another 160 million years, until they died out at the end of the Cretaceous.

The research for dinosaurs has been carried to every continent on Earth. This includes Antarctica, where the first dinosaur is said tpo be found.Every dino has its name according to the fossils found, also most of them are named by paleontologist who found them. Hundereds of fossils were found for different breed of dino.

This page deals with some dinosaurs along with its facts.

Aachenosaurus multidens


Aachenosaurus, this name arrived from the strength of two fossilized fragments that were thought to be parts of a duck-billed hadrosaur, which was imagined to be five meters long, bipedal, and covered with dermal spines.

The fossils turned out to be full of frightened wood from the Aachen deposits of Moresnet, on a approx triangular tiny European mini-state on the border of Germany, Belgium, and Holland. Not all of them were seemed particularly keen to stake their claim until they discovered a zinc-rich mine at Vieille Montagne, at which point where Belgium got out of their geometry set and expanded their territory by a couple of miles.

Gerald Smets, doctor of natural sciences and professor at the University of Saint-Joseph in Hasselt, was absolutely obstinate that his discovery had been properly scrutinized with the naked eye, magnifying lens and microscope, but when his claims were rubbished by Louis Dollo and a neutral commission,he withdrew from science due to pure discomfiture and faded into the mists of time.


Etymology


"Aachenosaurus" is originally from "Aachen" (for the Aachen deposits of Moresnet where it was discovered) and the Greek "sauros" means lizard. The species epithet, multidens, is derived from the Latin "multus" that means many and "dens" that is teeth, though not sure how many teeth a tree has!!!!

About It


Aardonyx is a kind of a prosauropod dinosaur. It is known from the type, Aardonyx celestae, which is found from South Africa. A. celestae was named after Celeste Yates,the one who prepared the first known fossil material of the species,this acts as the intermediate between prosauropods and sauropods.

According to Dr. Matthew Bonnan, the co-author on his study, he said that that already knew that the sauropods and near-sauropods would be bipeds .He also specifies that it bares weight in its foot,that started very earky in dinosaurs.He also adds that it was filling to have a hypothesis on how large would be its size,its field.

Physical Description


This genus is widely compared with humans,the disarticulated bones of this animal belongs to two immature individuals. It to be made up of diverse parts of cranial elements, vertebrae, dorsal and cervical ribs, gastralia, chevrons, elements of the pectoral and pelvic girdles and bones of the fore and hind limbs, manus, and pes.

The the physical existence of these bones in a single dense of gathering together in a localized channel can filled as a possible choice that they came from relatively complete carcasses.

Both individuals were process of thinking that they must have been less than 10 years old at the time of their death because of the lack of peripheral rest lines in the cortices of sampled bones.

"Digging Up The Past"


The discovery of Aardonyx is telecasted in the second episode of the 2010 BBC documentary named Museum of Life, "Digging up the Past".is described by paleontologist Paul Barrett as a transitional form between bipedal prosauropods and the giant quadrupedal sauropods.

About It


The naming of this animal as Abrosaurus has been a long and twisted process. Abrosaurus was discovered in 1984 in a thesis which is authored by Ouyang. Abrosaurus, at first described as a camarasaurid sauropod member, as it cannot turn out to be a member of that particular family, further research has indicated that it is a basal member of Macronaria, The generic name meaning 'delicate lizard', referring to the nature of the skull, that is of large openings separated by thin bony struts.

Unknown Facts


Abrosaurus likely shared its ecology with other sauropods like Camarasaurus‭,as well as other types of herbivorous dinosaur such as Agilisaurus and all other dinosaurs known from the same fossil formation as Abrosaurus.
Yangchuanosaurus is one particular large theropod dinosaur that may have been able to tackle an Abrosaurus.

abrosaurus_skull_dino

The idea is hesitant, because most descriptions of Abrosaurus is mostly around its skulll and not the additional post cranial skeletal fossils that were later attributed to it.

Abrosaurus is not more than 30 feet long,that is 9 meter.

The Abrosaurus actually existed at least 10-15 million years before the truly gigantic Sauropods even evolved.

Taxonomy


The word abros is a Greek word meaning fragile or delicate,the word saurus means lizard.Thus the name has arrived for this animal.Its skull is so fragile and small,it is made up of small pieces of bones.Hence it is considered as a delicate dinosaur.This binomial name was kept to this animal in honor of a Chinese poet named Su Dongpo.

Balaur Bondoc


The first leftovers that would turn out to be Balaur bondoc,was exposed in 1997 by Dan Grigorescu,that consists jigsaw of arm bones that paleontologists had to make a great effort to put together but ultimately identified as the property of an oviraptorosaur.(mistaking it)

Balaur is been predicted as largest dinosaur in its bionetwork despite, measuring only two meters in length. It is because in over a hundred years of research, a larger theropod has never been discovered in Romania.

balaur_bird_dino

On latest study by Cau et al. has Balaur hooked to be closer to modern birds than other dromaeosaurids.. In fact, in a bizarre twist, it may actually be a weird, herbivorous, flightless bird, with its robust first toe being used for weight-support rather than a weapon and a swept-back pubis making room for a pot belly to digest vegetation, much like therizinosaurids.

Taxonomy


Balaur is a Romanian term which designates a mythical folk dragon-like creature. In lamens terms it means "dragon".The word bondoc is pronounced like "boned oak" which literally means "squat and chubby" or possibly "runt" in Romanian. The authors specify "stocky" in reference to the small but robust build of the animal, which sounds much better.

Physical Description


This animal lived in mesozic Era,with maximum length of 2.1 meters and of maximum hip length of 0.7 meters long,it weighs around 45kg on average.It is a carnivore animal.Its age estimated to be around 71-66 mya.

About It


The fossils of Futalognkosaurus were discovered in Group, 90 km northwest about Neuquen City, in Argentina's Neuquen Province. With so many Neuquens, a name like Neuquensaurus may seem like a more obvious choice. Unfortunately, J.E. Powell beat the authors to the punch when he assigned this name to a saltasaurid titanosaur in 1992.

Taxonomy


Futalognkosaurus, named by Calvo, Porfiri, in 2007, a full seven years after its discovery, is derived from the Mapuche Futa means giant and Lognko that means (chief), and the Greek "sauros" (lizard). The species epithet, dukei, honors Duke Energy Argentina, which helped fund the skeleton's excavation.

About It


The leftovers of Haestasaurus were exposed in the Hastings Beds Group (exact locality unknown), on the coast near Hastings, England,1852.

The now-named Haestasaurus potentially represents the earliest known European titanosaur, provides a glimpse of sauropod evolution from a period (Berriasian-Valanginian) just after an extinction event around the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary, and includes the first dinosaurian skin impression recognised by science.

.

Taxonomy


Haestasaurus is derived from "Haesta" (the Saxon warlord whose people settled the area of Hastings—known in ancient texts as Hæstingas ["the settlement of Hæsta]—and gave the town its name) and the Greek "sauros" (lizard). The species epithet, becklesii, honors Samuel Husband Beckles who discovered the specimen.
