在恐龍化石的胃部發現一種前所未見的蜥蜴

A new species of lizard has been found in the stomach of a dinosaur in China.

研究人員在中國恐龍化石的胃部發現蜥蜴新屬種。

A team of palaeontologists discovered the Microraptor with the remains of a nearly complete lizard preserved in its stomach.

一組古生物學家發現了小盜龍化石,它的胃里保存著幾乎完整的蜥蜴遺骸。

The animal is unlike any previously known from the Cretaceous and represents a new species, Indrasaurus wangi, researchers said.

研究人員稱,這種蜥蜴不同于以往任何已知的白堊紀物種,是一種新物種——“王氏因陀羅蜥”(Indrasaurus wangi)。

It had teeth different to those previously known from the Jehol Biota - a collection of 130-million-year-old fossils from northeastern China.

這種蜥蜴的牙齒不同于白堊紀熱河生物群內的其他蜥蜴,熱河生物群是中國東北地區1.3億年前的化石群。

Researchers said this possibly suggested a unique diet for this new species, which was discovered by a team of palaeontologists led by Professor Jingmai O'Connor from the Institute of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Palaeoanthropology from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

研究人員稱,這可能意味著這種新物種有獨特的食性,該物種由中國科學院古脊椎動物和古人類研究所的鄒晶梅教授領導的古生物學家團隊發現的。

The discovery is the fourth documented case of a Microraptor preserving stomach contents.

而本項研究所報道的趙氏小盜龍標本,是迄今被報道的第四件胃里保存食物的小盜龍化石。

The dinosaur is now known to have fed on mammals, birds, fish, and lizards, supporting the interpretation it was an opportunistic predator.

小盜龍是一種肉食性恐龍,食譜包含鳥,魚,哺乳動物和蜥蜴,說明小盜龍是一種機會主義捕獵者。

'This is an independent origin of flight separate from birds,' she says. 'It flew with four wings,' Professor O'Connor told New Scientist.

鄒晶梅教授告訴《新科學家》雜志:“這是一種不同于鳥類的飛行物種,有四個翅膀。”

Published in Current Biology, the study sets out that the lizard is nearly complete and articulated, showing that it was swallowed whole and head first.

發表在《當代生物學》雜志上的這項研究表明,這只蜥蜴幾乎是完整的,而且保留了關節,表明它是被整只吞下的。

Every other Chinese 'discovery' has turned out to be fabricated. Why would this be different?

中國的所有“發現”都是偽造的。這次又有什么不同呢?

How can they tell from the shadow of a mashed up collection of half digested bones that it's a new species?

他們怎么能從一堆半消化的骨頭影中分辨出這是一個新物種呢?

At least he died with a full belly!

至少這只恐龍死的時候,肚子很飽!

Neat !! Everyone loves learning about dinosaurs!

太棒了! 每個人都對了解恐龍感興趣!

That's probably why it was never before seen- they were all eaten.

這可能就是為什么它以前從未被發現的原因——它們都被吃掉了。

hardly surprising it has never been seen before if it was inside another fossil!

如果它是在另一個化石的胃里,那么它以前從未被發現就不足為奇了!

my hat is off to scientists who can look at things that look like they went through a blender and find creatures in there

科學家們居然能從那些看起來像是經過攪拌的東西里面找到生物,向他們致敬
