A comment on the shape of the dinosaur Miraxis gigas

A team of scientists from Argentina claims to have discovered a new giant predatory dinosaur with a large head, but tiny arms compared to its size.

The scientists, who published their findings in the journal Current Biology, said they discovered large skeletons of previously unknown species during excavations in northern Patagonia.

The dinosaur known as “Miraxis gigas” was about 36 feet long and its skull was four feet long, while its arms were only about 2 feet long.

Scientists believe that smaller legs gave carnivores a survival advantage.
