In an astonishing find, an electrician accidentally got hold of a dinosaur-like corpse which has baffled the scientists. The electrician discovered this partially preserved dinosaur-like carcass while cleaning out a substation which was left untouched for years in the Jaspur town, Uttarakhand, India. The partially preserved corpse has its flesh attached to the bones, and this makes it a very well-preserved corpse to be considered as the remains of an ancient creature.
As per the latest reports, the strange creature has been sent for analysis that includes carbon dating, a method that could precisely estimate the age of the dinosaur-like creature. The paleontologists at Kumuan University will precisely study the strange creature, and after that, we can know what the carcass is all about.
Many videos have started surfacing online where the dinosaur resembling carcass can be seen clearly. It looks like a dinosaur, but we can’t say anything until all the tests are done, informed Dr. Parag Madhukar Dhakate, a Conservator with the Indian Forest Service. After looking at the dinosaur look-alike carcass, many experts are stunned by the shape and structure of the creature. They are not ready to believe that the partially-preserved corpse with its flesh intact is the remains of a Jurassic era dinosaur, although they do not completely deny the fact the latest discovered carcass might be well-preserved remains of a prehistoric creature.
Aaryan Kumar, a doctorate student in Paleontology from Delhi University said, Non-avian dinosaurs have been gone for the past 65 million years, but it does relate to theropods, a suborder of dinosaurs which involved bipedal Carnivores.” He then explained, “But a dinosaur skeleton could not have been found in such a well-preserved situation after millions of ages without it being in a fossilized condition. The only slightly possible way is it was chemically preserved to save it in a repository. But if that was the situation, how did it end up here?”
According to the experts, the shape of the 28 cm long creature could be linked with that of the Deinonychus, the Coelophysis and the Dromaeosaurus- all types of theropods (a suborder of dinosaur) that range in size from the small Anchiornis to the giant Tyrannosaurs-Rex. Some experts think that the dinosaur-like corpse could possibly be a genetically distorted animal fetus from within the goat family. But, as of now, the creature continues to be a mystery, and everybody is waiting for the analysis results.Tags: carcass, dinosaur, partially preserved corpse, theropods
