Science Thousand: New Species of Duck-Like Dinosaur! – New invention

Published on

Scientists have discovered a duck-like dinosaur. The name of that dinosaur is Natovenator polydontus.

It means ‘swimming predator with high teeth’. This dinosaur lived about 71 million years ago. It is slightly larger than a large duck with two legs. It is believed to be able to live in water for a long time.

A dinosaur with a slender long body

Scientists have discovered a new species of dinosaur with a long, slender, duck-like body that helped it dive and hunt prey like a modern penguin. Scientists also predict that it may have lived 71 million years ago.

A new type of theropod duck-like dinosaur

The findings were published Thursday in the journal Communications Biology. It is a non-avian theropod and bipedal carnivore with an elongated body.

Easily digested by the body

It is also said to have a long duck-like body that allows it to tear through water easily, go under water and grab food easily.

The Dino of Mongolia

None of the new dinosaur fossils discovered so far have such a long body as ducks. In the new discovery, scientists analyzed fossilized animal bones found in Mongolia (East Asia).

In the new discovery, scientists analyzed fossilized animal bones found in Mongolia (East Asia). By examining the fossils, scientists discovered that the dinosaur’s body had several design features. It was perfect for diving. It also conveys its streamlined body shape, including ribs towards the tail.

Long-necked Nattovenator

It also had a long neck, similar to modern diving birds such as geese found near ponds and rivers today. The long-necked “body shape of Natovenator suggests that it was an efficient swimming predator,” the study says.

Jaw with many teeth

Fossilized dinosaur bones now available have revealed the animal’s jaw size and unusually large teeth.

Teeth and food

The many teeth in this dinosaur’s jaw indicate that it ate fish and insects. But fossilized remains of Natovenator’s stomach have been found. The scientists said that if they are detected, they can also know if they are eating carnivorous food.
