The National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage said Monday that it had found the fossil of a Theropoda dinosaur from the early Cretaceous period (110 million to 120 million years ago) in Hadong, South Gyeongsang Province. Theropoda is a group of bipedal carnivorous dinosaurs that walked on two feet. It is the first time a Theropoda fossil has been found in Korea with the head well preserved. 9Yonhap)
