A fossil unearthed in China has given scientists a rare glimpse of what dinosaurs were like in the flesh.
The plant-eating Psittacosaurus had a thick layer of shark-like skin hidden under scales or feathers.
Palaeontologists believe this tough outer coating supported the dinosaur's organs and protected it from predators.
Tooth marks suggest the dinosaur was torn open by a scavenger, giving a unique insight into their biology, 100 million years after this one's death.
