T-Rex of the Deep: Fossil of 135million-year-old predator dinosaur related to vicious meat-eater discovered completely INTACT

I really hope, this has not been posted before. Just found a highly interesting article about something very cool they found in my neck of the woods:


The 'best ever' remains of a predator dinosaur have been unearthed in Germany with 98 per cent of its skeleton intact. The discovery of the dinosaur, nicknamed Otto by paleontologists in Bavaria, is being hailed as a sensation, and the German government has already decreed it cannot leave the country.

The Theropod - 'beast-footed' - dinosaur is of the same family as the T-Rex but the individual found in Kelheim has not yet been categorised.

Otto is 28 inches long and a juvenile. Hair and traces of skin have also been found on the skeleton.


So is Otto 2 feet 4 inches from head to tail?





So what part of Otto does the above uncovering represent.
It looks like a section of tail, but appears to be way out of proportion with the reported 28 inch
complete body length. I suppose that it could be the lower jaw but again it would appear to be
out of proportion with the reported juvenile creature length!
