The subject that deals with the study of dinosaurs is called paleontology – a science that analyzes the life forms that populated the Earth. He studies its evolutionary process, its progress and its extinction.

Thanks to research, paleontologists are able to reconstruct the habits of living things that died out millions of years ago, answering an endless series of questions from curious people around the world.

In recent weeks, great progress has been made in this area, thanks to the recovery of fossils and the use of modern technologies that allow us to have a more detailed picture of the discovery.

According to experts, its appearance resembles that of a modern tank, but on two legs. So much so that his name, Jakapil kaniukura, actually means “shield bearer”. What are its main characteristics?

It turned out that he is quite small and has rows of bones on his back that are very similar to those found on crocodiles. Its appearance suggests that it may be a formidable predator, but in fact studies confirm that it is herbivorous.

Most of the remains of this species have been found especially in the northern hemisphere. In Argentina – the site of today’s discovery – we have no particular attestation, at least until today.
