The disclosure was declared Jan. 24 in the logical diary PeerJ.
“Previously, paleontologists thought there was only one species of Allosaurus in Jurassic North America, but this study shows there were two species — the newly described Allosaurus jimmadseni evolved at least 5 million years earlier than its younger cousin, Allosaurus fragilis,” said study co-lead creator Mark Loewen, explore partner at the Natural History Museum of Utah and partner teacher in the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Utah, in an announcement.”The skull of Allosaurus jimmadseni is more lightly built than its later relative Allosaurus fragilis, suggesting a different feeding behavior between the two.”
Utah keeps on offering crisp looks into its ancient past. In a different undertaking, for instance, scientists uncovered another types of ankylosaur, or heavily clad dinosaur, in the Beehive State.

A year ago researchers additionally divulged dazzling exploration that reveals insight into the 24 hours that followed the space rock sway that cleared out the dinosaurs.
The space rock strike 66 million years prior has been contrasted with the intensity of 10 billion nuclear bombs.
