Researchers in Australia discovered the fossil of a rare and still mysterious dinosaur they believe roamed Antarctica 110 million years ago.

The fossil is a single vertebrae from the elaphrosaurs genus, part of the theropod family and a relative of the Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptor.

According to a team of researchers from Swinburne University, the new species of elaphrosaurs had a long and thin torso - around four times as long as it was tall - and lived on a diet of mainly plants.

The fossil was originally discovered in 2015 at a popular site on Cape Otway a few hours outside Melbourne, nicknamed Dinosaur Cove.

The site is part of a volunteer-led initiative to help paleontologists search for new fossils, called the Dinosaur Dreaming Project.

The elaphrosaur vertebrae was originally found by volunteer Jessica Parker, and sent to Melbourne Museum for study.

Researchers initially thought it might have come from a flying dinosaur like a pterosaur because of its smaller size, but subsequent examination found significant differences that led the team to consider alternative species.

The fossil dates back an estimated 110 million years, when Australia was part of a supercontinent with what is presently Antarctica.

At that time, Antarctica wasn't a frozen expanse but a lush jungle with a wide range of plant and animal life that could have supported the primarily plant-based diet of the elaphrosaurs.

'This discovery greatly expands the range of these animals,' Brusatte said.

'They were probably a widespread, and perhaps even global, group of dinosaurs, which we haven’t yet appreciated because of the scanty clues they left behind.'

Given the number of fossils that have been found over the years around Dinosaur Cove, the team is hopeful they'll find more evidence of elaphrosaurs in the future and hopefully learn about differences and similarities with their kin in China, Tanzania and Argentina.

I will believe you don't believe if you also believe those strange looking creatures with two heads and all that described in the Bible are imaginary wink

I know in your mind you believe, you just fear it may contradict your beliefs and hence to be safe, you choose to deny you believe

Sometimes eh, the exaggerated "facts" that are given to these archaeological findings, makes science look like Superstitions!

Awon 110million years!

How a dating-analysis system of less than 200 years old is able to make a hundred million years prediction begs a lot of question! AI learns from data, how many data did they get from earth at 100+ million years ago to teach these machines accurately.

Modified: Interestingly this statement of curiosity has stepped on the toes of self-acclaimed AI specialist, paleontologists, neural network administrators whose idea of giving clarifications is to INSULT AND POINT TO GOOGLE, some even going as far as copy-and pasting information from webpages as a response to my statement. C'mon....if you fail in understanding the simplest meaning that a forum is a platform to discuss and learn, then you've failed in the use of social media and hence have no right castigating my opinion.

Some have failed in understanding "makes science look like superstition" as a opening argument rather than a statement of fact comparing science with superstition. shame on you. Some have put their sensibility to a highly primitive state that will probably be even more backward than the date this so called dinosaur is estimated to have lived. Using words such as ESTIMATES, APPROXIMATE, ROUGHLY" only shows that there should be allowance for a possible Systematic or Random error in these figures - I maintain my stand! Some of the figures are way off! Come and beat me.

Yes, I am living in Ice-Age behind my phone; LOL. If you can't teach what you think you know, then you know nothing! Every mention that sort to poke holes rather than approach with knowledge deserves an eternal ignoring!

Can't you make a solid and logical point in the context of this topic without bringing an off-point fanatical and extremist comparison of two opposing "data"?

Nonsense sad

So when you found animal bones you just attribute to this and tag million s of years to it

The heading is misleading
