In India, we found traces of dinosaurs that lived 150 million years ago
The chain of three-toed prints fossil was found in the middle of the Thar desert near Jaisalmer
Traces of carnivorous dinosaur of the suborder Eubrontes Gleneronsensis theropods left them 150 million years ago, scientists discovered in the north-west of India in the state of Rajasthan.
The chain of three-toed prints fossil was found in the middle of the Thar Desert near Jaisalmer group of scholars of geology and zoology department of the local university Jai Narain .
“We could Find the three-toed impressions of dinosaurs with powerful claws and large cushions fingers larger than 30 centimeters According to preliminary estimates, they leave the pangolin to 3 meters high and 5.7 meters long, lived on the coast.” – Dr. Virendra said Parihar.
One of the main objectives of the expedition – the discovery of fossils in India flying and marine reptiles, not previously encountered here, and the pool of Kutch and Vaisakhi geological formation in Jaisalmer district considered very suitable for this place. Tar or, as it is called, the Great Indian Desert, is particularly interesting in the geological and historical sense for the study of fossils, because in this area the sea was at least four times in the last 280 million years – in the Triassic, Cretaceous, Cenozoic periods. It left in the sediments of the many fragments of fossilized plants and animals.
Traces Eubrontes Gleneronsensis were found in India for the first time, although they had previously met all over the world – in France, Poland, Slovakia, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Australia and the United States
