Buenos Aires: Scientists have found the fossilised remains of a carnivorous dinosaur in Argentina, officials said.
Argentinean scientists from Las Lajas town museum and researchers from Canada`s University of Alberta found fossilised bones of "saurischian" (lizard-hipped) dinosaurs in the southern province of Neuquen, 1,300 km south of Buenos Aires, they said Tuesday.
The saurischian dinosaurs, which grew to as much as four metres in length and two metres in height, were carnivorous and biped.
Many fossilised skeletons of animals that lived millions of years ago have been found in Argentina`s Patagonia region where Neuquen province is located.
A group of experts had discovered a similar site in Neuquen in December 2009, where they found dinosaur fossils dating back 130 million years.
