CARACAS - A group of international scientists have discovered the remains of a unique carnivorous dinosaur in Western Venezuela, research in the Royal Society Open Science said on Wednesday.

The roughly 1.5 meters long species, thought to have lived 200 million years ago, had a "unique suite of features of its tibial articulations," the publication's abstract said.

The remains of a hip and tibia bone belonging to a "Tachiraptor admirabilis" were uncovered after 20 years of investigation.

The scientists concluded that the species may have lived in the initial Jurassic phase and could have been the ancestor of the menacing T. Rex dinosaur.
