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.
