SCIENTISTS DISCOVER NEW DINOSAUR SPECIES RELATED TO TYRANNOSAURUS REX IN ENGLAND

Paleontologists at the University of Southampton have spent months studying four bones that were found last year in the village of Shanklin, on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England.

According to the statement released by the university, a new species of dinosaur related to the Tyrannosaurus rex has been discovered in England.

It said that the bones were from the
neck, back and tail of a new dinosaur “previously unknown to science,”

The dinosaur would have measured about 4 meters (about 13 feet) long and is a type of theropod dinosaur — a group of carnivores that typically walked on two legs instead of four, which includes the Tyrannosaurus rex.

It lived in the Cretaceous period, about 115 million years ago.

Scientists named the dinosaur Vectaerovenator inopinatus — a name that refers to large air sacs in some of the bones, which are commonly seen in theropods, and which helped the researchers identify the species.

The sacs are also seen in modern birds; they likely helped create an efficient breathing system in these dinosaurs, while also making the skeleton lighter.
