Dinosaur Gigantoraptor Picture

About Dinosaur Gigantoraptor Picture:

Dinosaur Gigantoraptor was a omnivore. Gigantoraptor estimated the length at 8 metres (26 ft) and the weight at 1400 kilogrammes. The toothless lower jaws of Gigantoraptor are fused into a broad shovel-like mandibula. They indicate that the unknown skull was over half a metre long and toothless also, probably equipped with a horny beak. The front tail vertebrae have very long neural spines and are heavily pneumaticised with deep pleurocoels. The middle section of the relatively short tail is somewhat stiffened by long prezygapophyses. The back tail vertebrae are lightened by spongeous bone. The front limb is rather long because of an elongated slender hand. The humerus is bowed outwards to an exceptionally large extent and has a very rounded head. The first metacarpal is very short and carries a strongly diverging thumb. The hindlimb is also long because of an elongated lower leg. The thighbone is relatively slender and short with a distinct head and neck. The foot is robust with large and strongly curved toe claws It lived in the Cretaceous period and inhabited Asia. Its fossils have been found in places such as Inner Mongolia (China).
