Researchers unearth dinosaur-like skeleton with flesh and bones (video)
New Delhi : A dinosaur-like creature has been found in India with skin tissues still attached to the bones. The researchers are mystified with the discovery as the body of found creature resembles exactly like dinosaurs.
The found body structure has been sent for the carbon dating test to know the real age.
The remains of the creature were found by an electrician wiping out a substation that left untouched from last 35 years in Jaspur, a small city in Uttarakhand, India.
The researchers, however, question it for being a dinosaur as finding the remains of dinosaurs, who extinct millions of years ago, is literally impossible.
It was not possible for a dinosaur skeleton to be so well conserved after so long, Aaryan Kumar, who is continuing a PhD in Paleontology from Delhi University, told local media. He said, "It looks like a dinosaur, but we can’t say anything until all the tests are done."
Kumar said, "Non-avian dinosaurs have been gone for the past 65 million years, but it does relate theropods, a suborder of dinosaurs which involved bipedal carnivores."
"But a dinosaur skeleton could not have been found in such a well-preserved situation after millions of ages without it being in a fossilized condition. The only slightly possible way is it was chemically preserved to save it in a repository. But if that was the situation, how did it end up here?"
Amid speculations about it being a dinosaur, there is also a suspicion of it being a flesh of genetically deformed goat.
While the mystery remains unsolved, we know that the dinosaurs had gone vanished from Earth nearly 65-million-years ago, the only way we can see them now is by animated graphics.
