    DescriptionA new species of dinosaur discovered by palaeontologists in Brazil may not sound like much, fossils suggest it was a meat-eater about the size of a chicken, but its paltry stature may have belied an abundance of swagger. X-ray scans of the fossil revealed a halo of fanciful protrusions surrounding its bones that researchers say may have featured in gaudy mating displays rivalling modern peacocks and birds of paradise

    DescriptionPaleontologists have discovered a new dinosaur species, Ubirajara jubatus. This dinosaur is small in size, only the size of a chicken, and has strange spikes on its shoulders. This is a long, flat, and hard ribbon-like structure made of keratin. Scientists think this is a decoration, similar to the tail feathers of a peacock.
