Paleontologists In Argentina Have Identified A New Species

Paleontologists in Argentina have identified a new species of usauropod dinosaurs. Newly discovered long-necked dinosaurs survived early Jurassic global warming. Paleontologists in Argentina have identified a new species of usauropod dinosaurs (true sauropods) that lived 179 million years ago.

After the mysterious disappearance of the nonuseuropod sauropod. Reconstruction of the life of Bagulia alba. The most recently identified dinosaurs lived in Argentina during the Early Jurassic era. The ancient creature was a type of eusropod.

A group of strict long-necked herbivorous quadruped dinosaurs that had evolved from the Early Jurassic to Upper Cretaceous. This animal, called Bagualia alba, is actually the oldest eusropod dinosaur ever known.

Soropodomorpha is the first major group of dinosaurs that has diversified into many recorded vegetarian lineages around the world, Dr. Diego Pol told the Agidio Ferruglio and Sonic Paleontological Museum and their colleagues from Argentina, the United States and Germany.

The first 40 million years of seropodomorph development are characterized by the coexistence of various lineages with large disparities in body size, ranging from small (less than 10 kg) to large (more than 5 tons) biomechanics and locomotion. Feed the types of. Quadruple early seraprodes.

“In the Middle Jurassic, Europod dinosaurs were the only surviving sapropodomorphs.” The remains of at least three Bagulia alba individuals, including a partial skull and cervical vertebrae, were found at the same site in Bagual Canyon in the Canadon Asphalto Basin, central Patagonia.

Paleontologists reported that “soropods have become the dominant group of large herbivores in terrestrial ecosystems, as many related lineages have become extinct by the end of the Early Jurassic,” the paleontologists explained.

The causes and exact timing of this major wildlife change, as well as the origin of the eusuropods, have not been clear, mainly due to the rare dinosaur fossil record from this time. The terrestrial sedimentary successors of the Canadon Sphalto Basin have documented this important interval of divine evolution.

To shed light on the extinction of the sauropodomorphs, Dr. Poole and his co-authors investigated the fossil flora and fauna of the Canadon Asphalto Basin. After a great magical event that affected southern Gondwana 180 to 184 million years ago.

They found evidence of a severe alteration of the ancient climate and a drastic reduction in flower diversity, leading to the emergence of conifers with small leaves with hooves. They were the reason.

They believe that the non-propopod sauropodomorphs became extinct by the soft flora, replacing the greenhouse vegetation. “After the event, Bugulia alba and other usropods displayed traits that were likely critical to their success after this environmental change,” the researchers said.

Their elongated necks provided feeding envelopes and maximum browsing heights, and their large body size is related to expanding intestinal capacity and fiber digestibility. Their deep and strong skulls and jaws indicate large.

Broad teeth with high bite force and their long jaw gait and thick enamel (over 700 m 700 m) and extensive aspects of high volume and high vegetable shear wear. Feeding has been interpreted as an adaptation to fix. On hard and fibrous plant material.
