Fossil remains of a carnivorous dinosaur of medium size, the age of which dates back 70 million years, has long lain at the bottom of the sea, which in ancient times was part of the land.
Herbivorous dinosaur lived 200 million years ago and characterized by huge size — with a length of about 30 meters.
