Scientists recently discovered in Lesotho fossilized traces of a previously unknown meat-eating dinosaur that lived about 200 million years ago.
Currently, lions, leopards and cheetahs are the dominant predators in the African country of Lesotho, but they are just harmless kittens compared to the predator, evidence of the existence of which was recently discovered by paleontologists.
Three-toed footprints with a length of 57 inches and a width of 50 centimeters is the largest of its kind ever found in Africa. Starting from the size of the paws, the researchers calculated that a new species of dinosaur , named Kayentapus ambrokholohali was about 9 meters long and 3 meters high. This is almost twice the average size of other Terpugov of the time.
“Latest discovery very interesting. This is the first evidence for extremely large flesh-eating animals, before we believed that there lived only a variety of herbivorous, omnivorous and small carnivorous dinosaurs. Discovered the view was really the top of the food chain,” says knoll, Fabien, co-author of the study.
