A mind-boggling discovery has recently been unveiled as experts believe they have discovered the skeleton of an alleged dinosaur with ‘flesh’ still attached to its bones.
Scientists have been puzzled by the discovery of the remains of a mystery creature, eerily reminiscent of a dinosaur, with flesh still attached to its bones.
As noted by the Inquisitr, an electrician was sweeping the floor inside a substation that had been abandoned for 35 years in Jaspur, a small city in Uttarakhand, India, when he accidentally unearthed the remains of a dinosaur-like creature.
But it can’t be a Dino’, right? I mean, Dinosaurs have been extinct for at least some 65 million years.
Well, according to preliminary findings we are wrong. The creature discovered in Jaspur resembles a theropod, a dinosaur suborder characterized by hollow bones and three-toed limbs. ,” explains Aaryan Kumar, a paleontology student at Delhi University.
“Non-avian dinosaurs have been extinct for the past 65 million years but it does resemble theropods, a suborder of dinosaurs which included bipedal carnivores,” explains Dr. Parag Madhukar Dhakate, a Conservator with the Indian Forest Service.
Theropods were ancestrally carnivorous, although a number of theropod groups evolved to become herbivores, omnivores, piscivores, and insectivores. Theropods first appeared during the Carnian age of the late Triassic period 231.4 million years ago.
The puzzling thing here is that “A dinosaur skeleton cannot be in such a good state of conservation after millions of years without fossilization. The only remotely possible way is that it has been chemically preserved for a museum. But if that is the case, how did it end up where it was found here?” wonders Aaryan Kumar, a Ph.D. student in Paleontology from Delhi University.
Among speculations, it has been suggested that the creature may be the fetus of a genetically modified animal, perhaps a goat.
For the time being, the specimen has been sent for analysis to Dr. Bahadur Kotlia, a paleontologist at the University of Kumaun, where a radiocarbon dating will be conducted in order to determine its age.
Many authors have claimed that not all dinosaurs have been extinct and that there is evidence of humans and dinosaurs coexisting on Earth.
One of the best pieces of evidence of humans coexisting with dinosaurs can allegedly be found on an ancient Cambodian Temple.
As we wrote in previous articles, if we take a look at a carving found on the Cambodian Ta Prohm temple, we will notice a supposed carving of a Stegosaurus or at least something that eerily resembles it.
Strangely, this temple was built around the 12th century prompting many authors and researchers to suggest that dinosaurs and mankind coexisted not long ago.
