Digging Raptor At Long Last! by HodariNundu Digging Raptor At Long Last! by HodariNundu
Por fin, el dichoso "raptor excavador" que Sereno describió como el dino mas raro que haya encontrado.
No sé su nombre todavía, pero parece que a pesar de su apodo, era de hecho un noasaurio- el mas completo hallado hasta ahora- y su caracteristica mas curiosa son sus brazos muy reducidos (me salieron un poco grandes aqui :B) con garras planas y fuertes y que podian moverse en un amplio arco, supuestamente para ayudarle a excavar y agrandar madrigueras de modo que podia meter la parte anterior de su cuerpo y alcanzar a sus presas con su largo cuello y dientes protuberantes.
Medía alrededor de 1.80 metros y coexistió con Suchomimus en lo que hoy es el Sahara, hace 110 millones de años.
Mantengan los ojos abiertos, parece que lo anunciaran oficialmente muy pronto.

Gracias a :iconkrajax: por avisarme.

At last, the mysterious "digging raptor" Sereno called the strangest dino he's ever found.
I don´t know its name yet but apparently, despite its nickname, it was actually a noasaurid, the most complete found thus far, and its most curious trait is the very reduced arms (I think I made them a bit too large here :B) with flat, strong claws, supossedly designed to dig and widen burrows so it could "dive" after underground prey and capture it with its long neck and protruding front teeth.
It was about 1.80 meters long and cioexisted with Suchomimus in what would one day become the Sahara, 110 million years ago. Keep your eyes open, it should be announced oficially soon.

Thanks to :iconkrajax: for the update.
