On the edge of England, the collapse of rocky rocks due to stormy storms revealed traces of seven species of dinosaurs that "lived in the same place at the same time".
The remains of the creatures of the emblematic Cretaceous, including Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus (armed dinosaur) and other predatory theropods, after heavy storms that were found near Hastings, were reported by a group of scientists from the University. Cambridge (United Kingdom), published in Science Day.
The reptiles that had been around for about 100-145 million years ago were found in the southern part of England.
Cambridges researchers identified routes between 2014 and 2018 after coastal erosion along Hastings cliffs. Many sizes, less than 2 cm and more than 60 cm, are very well preserved, with a good detail on the skin, scales and claws, says the university statement.
The beasts are known, for example, Iguanodon, a tall bipedal ornithopod, with thin fingers; and Ankylosaurus, Spinal & # 39; Armored & # 39; Herbs, bones full of bones and tail.
The clues include some of the possible Stegosaurus species, as well as some sauropods and carnivorous theropods.
"This type of collection fills a few gaps and simultaneously lives with dinosaurs," explains Dr. Anthony Shillito of Cambridge University. Find out the importance of the discovery of the reptile reptiles in England's history.
