Researchers have not discovered any previously known dinosaur species in Romania. It’s about a specimen that lives at the end of your dinotide perk. Zo’n hurt is free in Europe, as opposed to in North America and Asia.
The dinosaur has been named Transylvanosaurus platycephalus, a guide to the windy place: de Roemeen’s regio Transsylvanië. Det dier (right probes in the illustration) lived for 70 million years in the Cretaceous period. It was respectively short for the mass extinction of the dinosaurs, 66 million years ago.
At the site where the planning and bottom layers were found, the dinosaurs are still alive, but it is over ten years since a new type was discovered at one of the most important wind locations in Europe.
The remains of the dinosaur were found in 2007. An international research team, which exists among others by Dutch researcher Dylan Bastiaans van Naturalis in Leiden and the University of Zurich, has Transylvanosaurus platycephalus which is written as a new type.
European dinos were smaller than American and Asian ones
The dinosaur was about 2 meters long and walked on two paws. It is web like other dinosaurs in the area which is not big. Therefore, the group of scientists ze onder de zogeheten the dwarf dinosaur.
When the European dinos were not large, they arrived on the continent as a collection of land that was sent to shallow tropical countries. Because de eiland but limited food was available, there were a number of smaller and related species in North America and Asia. There, dinos can be more than 10 meters long.
Literally, Transylvanosaurus platycephalus means ‘flat-headed reptile from Transsylvanië’. The plant nets thus had a foreign broad plan. There are big differences in dino according to examiners evident from other types in the environment, and it is very clear.
Dino did too onmogelijk geachte oversteek
According to the researchers, Transylvanosaurus platycephalus was more desired on a French type. This probably means that dinosaurs from Franco-Spanish Island when it comes into contact with different types on the Central European Island, where Hungary, Austria and Rome are located. Westensikappers hielden die sichten tot nu toe for komplett onmogelijk.
Hoe Transylvanosaurus platycephalus in Transsylvanië terekkwam is not onduidelijk. More bottom is needed. The part of the plan and the other bottoms that have been found do not have enough.
