[Compiled by Chen Chengliang/Comprehensive Report]Scientists announced the discovery of a new dinosaur fossil in an oasis in the Western Desert of Egypt. The dinosaur had a flat bulldog-like face, walked on two hind legs, and had thick forearms. Ferocious carnivorous dinosaurs dominated the Sahara 98 million years ago!

According to “Newsweek” (Newsweek) reported that Egyptian and American paleontologists in the Sahara Desert’s Bahariya Oasis (Bahariya Oasis) discovered this huge fossil vertebra, the dinosaur biological classification belongs to a newly discovered, lizard-like The abelisaurid family, which lived in the Cretaceous period (145 million years ago to 66 million years ago), at the end of the age of dinosaurs.

Aberysaurids are a branch of theropod dinosaurs, a genus of dinosaurs characterized by hollow bones, walking on two hind legs, and only three toes on each foot.

The abelisaurids discovered in Egypt were carnivores, some scientists estimate they could have been 11 meters long and weighed 3 tons. Fossils of this type of dinosaur have previously only been seen in Europe and today’s southern hemisphere continent, never at the Baharia site.

This dinosaur had a shortened, bulldog-like face. Despite its ferocious appearance, it may not be at the top of the food chain, and there are larger and more ferocious beasts on the ground.

According to reports, the new study was led by Belal Salem of the Mansoura University Center for Vertebrate Paleontology (MUVP) in Egypt, who is also a graduate student at Ohio University and a faculty member at Benha University in Egypt.

Salem said this is the oldest known dinosaur fossil from northeastern Africa, suggesting that during the mid-Cretaceous, these carnivorous dinosaurs ranged across much of the northern part of the continent, from today’s Egypt to Morocco, from the east To the west, as far south as Niger, and possibly even further.

The Bahariya oasis in Egypt has near-legendary status among paleontologists because it has unearthed some of the world’s most amazing dinosaur fossils, researchers say. In the early 20th century, the formation produced many primitive specimens of dinosaurs, including the giant sailback piranha.

The study was published June 8 in the journal Royal Society Open Science.
