SCIENTISTS have been left baffled after this dinasoar-looking corpse was found in India- with flesh still on its bones.

The partially-preserved creature was discovered by a shocked electrician as he cleaned out a derelict sub-station in Jaspur, India.


It resembles a small dinosaur, but since flightless dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years, scientists are struggling to identify it.

The remains have now been sent for analysis, including carbon dating, which will reveal its age.

Dr Parag Madhukar Dhakate, a Conservator with the Indian Forest Service, said: "It looks like a dinosaur, but we can't say anything until all the tests are done."

Aaryan Kumar, who's pursuing a PhD in Paleontology from Delhi University, told local media that it was impossible for a dinosaur skeleton to be so well preserved after so long.



He explained: "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.

"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.

"The only even slightly possible way is it was chemically preserved to store it in a museum. But if that was the case, how did it end up here?"
