在恐龙化石的胃部发现一种前所未见的蜥蜴

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

研究人员在中国恐龙化石的胃部发现蜥蜴新属种。

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

一组古生物学家发现了小盗龙化石,它的胃里保存着几乎完整的蜥蜴遗骸。

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

研究人员称,这种蜥蜴不同于以往任何已知的白垩纪物种,是一种新物种——“王氏因陀罗蜥”(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.

这种蜥蜴的牙齿不同于白垩纪热河生物群内的其他蜥蜴,热河生物群是中国东北地区1.3亿年前的化石群。

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.

研究人员称,这可能意味着这种新物种有独特的食性,该物种由中国科学院古脊椎动物和古人类研究所的邹晶梅教授领导的古生物学家团队发现的。

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

而本项研究所报道的赵氏小盗龙标本,是迄今被报道的第四件胃里保存食物的小盗龙化石。

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

小盗龙是一种肉食性恐龙,食谱包含鸟,鱼,哺乳动物和蜥蜴,说明小盗龙是一种机会主义捕猎者。

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

邹晶梅教授告诉《新科学家》杂志:“这是一种不同于鸟类的飞行物种,有四个翅膀。”

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.

发表在《当代生物学》杂志上的这项研究表明,这只蜥蜴几乎是完整的,而且保留了关节,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?

中国的所有“发现”都是伪造的。这次又有什么不同呢?

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

他们怎么能从一堆半消化的骨头影中分辨出这是一个新物种呢?

At least he died with a full belly!

至少这只恐龙死的时候,肚子很饱!

Neat !! Everyone loves learning about dinosaurs!

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

这可能就是为什么它以前从未被发现的原因——它们都被吃掉了。

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

如果它是在另一个化石的胃里,那么它以前从未被发现就不足为奇了!

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

科学家们居然能从那些看起来像是经过搅拌的东西里面找到生物,向他们致敬
