Dinosaur Might Buried Alive


Sauropodomorph an herbivorous, long necked dinosaur has been discovered at Utah's red rocks.

The dinosaur was seemed to be buried, perhaps while it was still living, via collapsing sand dune.

The buried residue symbolizes the Utah’s oldest most complete dinosaur.

A sand dune was collapsed during the Early Jurassic Period, at Utah's red rocks with such power that it might have buried alive a plant-eating dinosaur, by placing the dead body in the tomb and preserving the dinosaur upside-down for 185 million years, according to a novel published in the journal PLoS ONE.

The dinosaur has been named as Seitaad ruessi in which the first word represents a Navajo creation legend sand-desert monstrous that consumed individuals in the dunes. The next word honors the artist and explorer Everett Ruess, who died strangely at the age of 20 in the similar area during the 1930s.

Ruess' body has not at all been found, but the fossils of the original dinosaur froze the animal's ultimate moments. A CT scan makes known that the dinosaur was missing a particular toe and a lower leg bone, suggesting that it either died and was shortly thereafter swallow up by a collapsing sand dune, or was buried alive.

Plesiosaur – Gives Single Birth in Water

Plesiosaur Dinosaur
Plesiosaur a kind of dinosaur is defined as one which has a giant, long-necked swimming reptile and has been lived for a period of about 78 million years ago. It is a kind of carnivorous marine reptile.
After the detection of plesiosaurs, it is said that it resembles a snake threaded through the shell of a turtle, even though they had no shell. Their skeletons were first found in England by Mary Anning before the period of early 19th century. And it is the first fossil vertebrates to be illustrated by science.
This unique dinosaur has determined a long-held secrecy about the animals and how they reproduced.
As per the scientists those marine livings of ancient seas such as modern whales and dolphins are actually gave birth to their newborns beneath the water one at a time, and could have cared for them much as modern whales do.
Many creatures in the marine reptile world of that period shows that they gave birth to a dozen or more at a time but plesiosaur is the first to show proof of a single birth and only in the water, according to the paleontologists.
