New Dinosaur Species Discovered in Argentina

A newfound dinosaur species from Argentina suggests that fleet-footed, meat-eating dinosaurs with sickle-like claws on their hind feet roamed both the Southern and Northern Hemispheres through the end of the dinosaur age.

The new species, named Neuquenraptor argentinus, was about seven feet (two meters) long and similar in shape and size to Velociraptor mongoliensis, the smart, speedy, sickle-clawed dinosaurs immortalized in the movie Jurassic Park.
