The team said the Ubirajara jubatus Bows Or Burnouts Brother Loves You Gender Reveal Party Idea Shirt dinosaur lived ago 110 million years, in the Cretaceous period, along an ancient lagoon that is now northeastern Brazil. They feed on insects and small animals like frogs and lizards.
According to professor of paleontology Bow Hunting American Flag Deer For Arrow Hunters Pullover Shirt David Martill – of the University of Portsmouth (UK), leading the study published in the journal Cretaceous Research – the dinosaur’s skeleton is completely similar to other small Jurassic dinosaurs. before. However, their appearance is quite different.
The Ubirajara jubatus has a hair-like Boys Rawr I’m 3 3Rd Birthday Dinosaur Shirts Dinosaur Gift shirt mane and possesses a special and unique characteristic of two “ribbons” growing on the back. These two “ribbons” are made from keratin, also known as keratin – an important ingredient in hair and nails.
“There are a lot of exotic dinosaurs, but this species is unlike any of them” – Professor Martill shared, Reuters quoted.
The hair-like structure of the dinosaur Ubirajara is a crude form of feather, called the protofeather. It really isn’t hair – a mammal characteristic. Many dinosaurs Bows Or Burnouts Brother Loves You Gender Reveal Party Idea shirt also had feathers. In fact, birds evolved from small feathered dinosaurs about 150 million years ago.
“It looks more like hair than hair from a distance. This mane is especially long on the back and is a unique mane of the Ubirajara dinosaurs” – Mr. Martill said.
Regarding the “ribbon”-like structure of the dinosaur Ubirajara, Mr. Martill said it could be used to attract Bow Hunting American Flag Deer For Arrow Hunters Pullover shirt mates or intimidate opponents, or as a “criterion” to compete between males of the same species. .
Professor Martill says this attractive trait usually occurs only in male animals, similar to the tail feathers of Book Wyrm – Magical Dragon Book Worm Reading shirt male peacocks. Therefore, the team of scientists “guessed” that the fossil Ubirajara they gathered was that of a male.
“The ribbon seemed to grow out of the shoulder and it didn’t look like anything I’ve ever seen in nature,” added Mr. Martill.
