In general, theropods, including Tyrannosaurus, are carnivorous. But Fukuivenator, which had a long neck, is believed to have been omnivorous.


Tokyo: A new dinosaur fossil has been found in Japan's Fukui prefecture, bringing the number of species discovered in the country to seven, the media reported on Saturday.

According to fossil analysis, the new creature was a small theropod that had both primitive and derived features, according to the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum. It has been named Fukuivenator paradoxus, or “paradoxical hunter of Fukui”, The Japan Times reported.

I looked at the photo of this fossil & at the lower right its limb looks more like that of an aquatic ichthyosaur than a theropod dinosaurr.Fukuivenator.jpg
