New dinosaur species found on the English island

For 115 million years ago, in the cretaceous period, roamed an animal around on the ground, which now turns out to be a previously unknown species of dinosaur.

Vectaerovenator inopinatus is the colloquial name of the species has been found on the English island of the Isle of Wight.

The four bones were found last year, and now concludes paleontologists from the University of Southampton, there is talk of a new art

Dinosaur is in the same family as the well-known Tyrannosaurus rex and the birds we know today. The family called theropods and are in Danish called rovøgler.

the Name is linked with the large air vents, the researchers found in the bones, which originates from the neck, the back and the tail on the dinosaur.

The first bones were found by fossiljægeren Robin Ward, who comes from William Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, in England. He was with the family on a trip to the island, since he did found.

- I was really shocked to find out that it could be a new species, he said.

Chris Barker, who stands behind the study of the bones, says that it is a rare find.

- It is not often that there has been found theropod-dinosaurs from the mid-cretaceous period in Europe, so it has been very exciting to expand our understanding of species diversity from the time.

Dinosaur has likely lived just to the north of the site where the bones were found, which kadaveret is flushed out in the sea.
