Fossil collectors in Germany have unearthed one of the best-preserved dinosaur skeletons ever found – a meat-eating baby theropod that looks like a tiny Tyrannosaurus…
Theropods, which include the fearsome Tyrannosaurus, are among the rarest dinosaur finds. The fossil found is not a Tyrannosaurus but a new species of previously unknown dinosaur.…
Just 72 centimetres long, the fossil is believed to be 150 million years old and was found 98 per cent intact in chalk ground near Kelheim, in Bavaria, southern Germany, two years ago. Even some of its skin and hair-like filaments that are an early form of feathers – so-called “protofeathers” – are preserved.
The discovery was a closely guarded secret until now. The fossil has undergone scientific tests and will be put on public display for the first time on October 27 at the Munich Show, a major international exhibition of minerals, gems and fossils.…
The fossil has been registered as a German cultural treasure, which means it can never be sold.
