Discovery of two new species of dinosaurs that orbited 125 million years ago

Scientists have discovered two new species of extinct dinosaurs that are thought to have roamed the south of England 125 million years ago.

This discovery sheds new light on dinosaur predators. Archaeologists have described one of these carnivorous reptiles as a "heron of hell" because its hunting style can be compared to that of terrifying birds.

Remains of a three-toed dinosaur have been found off the coast of the Isle of Wight in England. They belonged to the genus Spinosaurid, and are thought to have been nine meters (29 feet) long and skulls one meter (3 feet) long.

It took many years to dig out and assemble about 50 of his bones.

The first specimen is called the Seratosuchops infrudius, a type of samorog, and is labeled a "horned crocodile-like infernal heron." Due to its small horns and the rugged area around the eyebrows, it has also been described as a hunting heron.

The other has been dubbed the Repervinator Millennia, which has been translated as "Milner's River Hunter" in honor of British archaeologist Angela Milner. He has recently died.

Fossil collectors initially found fragments of two dinosaur skulls, after which a team from the island's Dinosaur Oil Museum dug up a large portion of the tail.

This is the last skeleton to be found after the last spinosaurid skeleton, which belongs to the Barionix and was discovered in 1983 from a Surrey mine. Since then, only single bones and separate teeth have been found. Chris Barker, a research author at the University of Southampton and a Ph.D. scholar, said: I had more types of spinosaurids.

Darren Nash, a British theropod dinosaur expert and co-author of the study, said: It's a big surprise in a short time. The study also suggests how spinosaurids may have flourished in Europe before spreading to Asia, Africa, and South America.

A collection of about 50 bones will be on display at the Dinosaur Oil Museum in Sandown.

Curator Dr. Martin Mint said the discoveries have strengthened the status of the Isle of Wight because it is an important site for dinosaur remains in Europe.
