Discovered in Neuquén, Argentina, the Alvarezsaurus remains they did not include his skull and forelimbs. It was a small, slightly built animal with long legs, suggesting that it could run quickly.

A strange feature of this genre is the lack of spines on the neck vertebrae.

Some scientists believe that the Alvarezsaurus is related to the Mongolian mononychus.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
