Dinosaurs have always been a mystery for human being and have always been a subject of experiment and finding something new about them.

Recently a new species of Dinosaurs has been found and is named Halszkaraptor esuilliei after Polish palaeontologist Halszka Osmolska.

This species has a bill like a duck, teeth like a croc’s, a swanlike neck and killer claws, flippers like a penguin but walked like an ostrich. This meat eating Dino can also swim making it the first of its kind having swimming ability. Though the creature could run and swim but it was not able to fly.

This tiny creature only about 45 centimeters tall roamed about 75 million years ago in area which is now Mangolia.

Scientists believe that this creature would likely have been comfortable both on the water surface and on the land, making it a particularly versatile carnivore.

The full research paper was published in the magazine Nature.
