A team of paleontologists and geologists from Argentina and the United States on Jan. 13 announced the discovery of a lanky dinosaur that roamed South America in search of prey as the age of dinosaurs began, approximately 230 million years ago.


Sporting a long neck and tail and weighing only 10 to 15 pounds, the new dinosaur has been named Eodromaeus, the "dawn runner."

Pretty cool discovery,reminds me of a smaller,more pint-sized raptor and probably very nimble & quick on it's feet.
believed to be the second oldest known carnivore dinosaur ever discovered leading way to much larger predators like T-Rex and Allosaurus.

That is a really good discovery and very cool looking too. Looks like a miniature Velociraptor!

That is exactly what I was thinking.
most likely more agile being a scrappier,smaller carnivore.

I do not think so but I do see the resemblance you speak of in the picture

S&F for posting this. I'm not sure how unique that particular dino is, seems like I've seen some like it before in films... but hell I'm no expert on it. Cool stuff though.

It is a new discovery,closely related to other larger carnivores,Paved the way for much larger,dominant Dino's like T-Rex etc.
