The corpse of an unidentified animal that looks eerily similar to a dinosaur has been found in Jaspur, a city in Uttarakhand, India. According to the Daily Mail, the animal was found by an electrician at a substation that had been left abandoned for close to forty years.
As the Daily Mail reports, scientists have been puzzled by the existence of this specimen and its resemblance to a flightless dinosaur. So, the body has been sent for examination and carbon dating, which will help to figure out how old the animal is.
Dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years.
One expert told the local media that it's impossible for an actual body of a dinosaur to be so well preserved that there's still flesh on the bones.
"Non-avian dinosaurs have been extinct for the past 65 million years but it does resemble theropods, a suborder of dinosaurs which included bipedal carnivores," he said. "But a dinosaur skeleton could not have been found in such a well-preserved condition after millions of years without it being in a fossilized state."
He added that there's a way that it could have been chemically preserved for storage in a museum, but then the question of how it got to the substation remains.
