Palaeontologists have found a near complete skeleton of a new member of the bird-like dinosaur family Dromaeosauridae, reports the latest issue of the journal Zootaxa. It is hoped this species, which is a close relative of the popularly known Velociraptor, will shed light on the physical appearance of other members of its family.
