Fossils of Albinykus and Blikanasaurus

1 Fossils
1.1 Fossil representation
       Asmall alvarezsaur,one of the notable things about Albinykus is thateven though it is only known by its hind quarters, these were foundin a crouching position. Oviraptosaursand troodontsare also knownto have crouched, so the discovery that alvarezsaurs like Albinykuscould also enter this position indicates that crouching in at leastsome theropod (mostly maniraptorian) dinosaurs was fairly common.,       Unfortunatelythe lack of further skeletal and cranial remains means that there isstill much we don’t know about this genus, but as an alvarezsaur,Albinykus would be expected to have very shortstubby arms, possiblyending in just a single claw, while possibly being insectivorousin its dietary habits.
       Althoughonly known from a single limb section, a lot can actually be inferredabout this dinosaur. One is that the shape and form of the limbreveals it is from a sauropodomorph dinosaur, better known as theancestors of the sauropods like the later Apatosaurus andCamarasaurus .In additional the foot is proportionately much shorterthan earlier forms which reveals that Blikanasauruswas probablyquadrupedal for most if not all of the time (earlier sauropodomorphsare generally regarded as switching between quadrupedal and bipedalpostures as the situation dictated).
