Paleontologists have the notion that the dinosaur was quite large in itself, but was still smaller than the famous meat eater known as Tyrannosaurus rex. The discovery, based on a large leg bone which can itself be a huge 3 feet in length when finished, is described in the new issue of the journal PLOS ONE.

This fossil won’t win a beauty contest,” co-author Christian Sidor of the Burke Museum said in a press release. “But fortunately it preserves enough anatomy that we were able to compare it to other dinosaurs and be confident of its identification.”

It is a theory of Burke and his colleague Brandon Peecook that the fossil belonged to a theropod. Theropods refer to a group of dinosaurs which are the mix of iconic species such as Velociraptor and the Tyrannosaurus rex as previously mentioned, and then some modern birds.

The fossil possibly belongs to the Late Cretaceous period and is around 80 million years old, so that is when this Washington dwelling dinosaur would have stomped around the Evergreen State. It is believed that it probably preferred and lived in more of a marine environment, however, since calms from the same time period were also retrieved along with the remains of the dinosaur.

These particular clams, representative of the species Crassatellites conradiana, lived in shallow water. It’s therefore likely that the dinosaur died near the sea, was tossed by the waves, and eventually came to rest among the clams
