BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Scientists say unearthed fossils from a carnivorous dinosaur that lived in Argentina about 90 million years ago show that it had tiny arms compared to its body.
The team of scientists says the animal was up to 26 feet long but its arms only measured about 2 feet. It was a Theropod like other meat-eating dinosaurs including the Tyrannosaurus rex.
The fossils were found in Argentina's northern Patagonia region in 2007. But difficulties postponed the team's analysis.
The team thus combined the native word for "curse" with the last name of the person who discovered the first fossils to name the dinosaur "Gualicho shinyae."
The team held a news conference in Buenos Aires Wednesday after their conclusions were published in the PLOS ONE journal.
