“We found a very large instance of the new megaraptor that were carnivorous dinosaurs , they had impressive tools for hunting”, – quotes Agency the words of the paleontologist Mauro Aransay.
Unlike Tyrannosaurus, megaraptor was more slender, better prepared for the race, with long tails that allow them to keep their balance, at the same time they were muscular, but extra long legs so they could do longer steps.
Also, according to scientists, megaraptor had an elongated neck and skull, which undoubtedly helped them easier access to victims.
