Adult Dinosaur Skull Secrets

Wilson an assistant professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and an assistant curator at the U-M Museum of Paleontology said that a dinosaur Diplodocus by name had an unusual skull.

The small Diplodocus skull, however, suggests that the most important changes taken place in the skull throughout the animal's life.

Examination of the youngest and most absolute dinosaur skull of any kind of tyrannosaur discovers significant differences between the young and old of the same species.

A 2-3 year old Tarbosaurus skull was discovered in Mongolia in the year 2006 which is 29 centimeter long skull which is a part of an almost entire skeleton that’s missing only the neck and a part of the tail. It tends to be a close relative of the North American Tyrannosaurus Rex a giant meat-eating predator that lived 70 million years ago.

Ohio demonstrated the structural distinction between the youthful predators and their fearsome elders with the assist of CT scans. It is examined that the skull is relatively delicate and wouldn’t have been able to hold up the kinds of thrashing about and powerful sorts of actions that the adults have. So what this creature must have done is have a very different kind of hunting approaches.

The adults use their supremacy and mass to kill large prey. Witmer says the adolescent were alert and skillful individuals.

There is a clue from a Tyrannosaur species is that some of these young animals actually palled around in groups of juveniles which is a sort of rambling gangs of young tyrannosaurs potentially avoiding the adults.

A sophisticated picture of ecosystems gives us a clear idea in terms of who was eating whom.

In the past it has been said that the Tarbosaurus as a class was the one predator.

But right now it has been thought that Tarbosaurus in fact presented in a sense, multiple kinds of predators.

Witmer expects more secrets will be revealed from the young Tarbosaurus skull.
