Paleontologists have discovered one of the most pristine patch of dinosaur tracks ever seen, and multitude of tracks indicates a massive herd roamed through Alaska 70 million years ago.
A new fossil specimen of the dinosaur Archaeopteryx has been discovered, and it's utterly covered in feathers from head to toe. Researchers say that this could provide new evidence that feathers evolved long before flight was a reality.
The triceratops didn't always have the magnificent rack of horns that they are so well known for. The beaked dinosaur once sported a longer beak and shorter horns, but over the course of evolution it developed a more impressive and deadly display, according to a recent study.
Based on fossils collected from the state of Montana and Alberta, Canada, scientists have named a new species of horned dinosaur for its wing-like headgear.
When you think of enormous dinosaurs, you would expect their eggs to be just as massive. Well, think again. At least for sauropods, their eggs were a lot smaller than anticipated, partly due to the fact that they didn't put all their eggs in one basket.
It seems that dinosaurs couldn't make up their minds. Neither were they cold-blooded like modern reptiles, nor warm-blooded like mammals and birds, but rather an in-between rarely seen nowadays, researchers say.
Upon finding evidence of a 66-million-year-old forest fire fossil, archaeologists are realizing that forests from the dino-era recovered from fires in the same manner they do today.
A monstrous ancient species of crocodilian 16 feet (4.8 meters) long and clocking in at 900 pounds (408 kilograms), which preyed on turtles and battled massive snakes, has been given a rather unique scientific name by researchers from the University of Florida.
A museum dedicated to showing off evidence supporting Creationism is unveiling an unusual new exhibit this Memorial Day weekend - a 30-foot long 10-foot high dinosaur skeleton. The perfectly preserved Allosaurus skeleton, the museum claims, is evidence that Noah's flood actually happened.
Dinosaur fossils unearthed in Patagonia suggest that long-necked diplodocid sauropods lived well beyond the Jurassic period, despite contrary belief that they went extinct, Argentine paleontologists reported Thursday.
Ancient crocodilians killed their smaller dinosaur prey by spinning their bodies in "death rolls," a move so violent that it tore the flesh and limbs clean away, researchers say.
Scientists used state-of-the-art imaging techniques to examine the cracks, fractures and breaks in the bones of a 150 million-year-old predatory dinosaur.
Tyrannosaurus rex had a long-nosed cousin that roamed the wilds of what is now China more than 66 million years ago.
The Fossil Hall at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is now closed for a five-year, $48 million renovation.
