Velociraptors and Linheraptor

A new species of dinosaur, a relative of the famous Velociraptor, has been discovered in Inner Mongolia by two PhD students. The exceptionally well preserved dinosaur, named Linheraptor exquisitus, is the first near complete skeleton of its kind to be found in the Gobi desert since 1972, and will help scientists work out the appearance of other closely related dinosaur species. Velociraptor was a mid-sized dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to 6.8 feet long, 1.6 feet high at the hip, and weighing up to 33 pounds.
