Archaeologists discovered an intact dinosaur carcass in the Amazonian jungle

Researches related to dinosaurs have always drawn a lot of interest among the public. Within this background, we noticed viral social media posts claiming that scientists had recently found the most well-preserved dinosaur fossil and it can be even labelled “dinosaur mummy” also. However, our investigation proved this was part of an April fools’ joke.

A photo collection of allegedly the most well-preserved dinosaur scientists had ever found was shared by many social media users on April fool’s day (1st of April) with the below narration.

Scientists are calling it the best-preserved dinosaur specimen ever discovered. Found accidentally by surveyors near the upper wilson creek area on Pisgah National Forest, this fossilized theropod should be more than 77 million years old, yet the skin, bones and organs seem to be intact. According to the NC Natural History Museum in Raleigh, which recently unveiled the find, the dinosaur is so well-preserved that instead of a ‘fossil’, we could safely call it a ‘dinosaur mummy.’

The researchers examining the find were astounded at its nearly unprecedented level of preservation. The creature’s skin, teeth, and even some of its guts were intact – something they’d never seen before.

“You don’t need to use much imagination to reconstruct it; if you just squint your eyes a bit, you could almost believe it was sleeping,” one researcher said.

Although how the dinosaur mummy could remain so intact for so long remains somewhat of a mystery, researchers suggest that the theropod may have been swept away by a flooded river and carried out to and ancient sea, where it eventually sank to the now exposed ocean floor.

Now believed to be identified as Appalachiosaurus, conservation experts are looking into coding it’s DNA. Dr. James Harvin states, “Knowing this animal once roamed this area, we will be putting all effort possible into restoring the species. We hope to reintroduce it into its ancient stomping grounds”.
