Numerous injuries and bone infections were recently found on the fossil bones of a dinosaur known as Dilophosaurus wetherilli. Researchers say these health issues were probably painful and made it difficult for the animal to hunt.
Researchers have for the first time found evidence of tumors on a dinosaur fossil that isn't a member of the duck-billed dinosaur family. They were found on the fossilized vertebra of a long-necked titanosaur.
Unusual fossil tracks found in northern China have baffled scientists for years because they suggest that these very large four-legged dinosaurs called Sauropods might have been able to walk on two feet. The debate has raged on for years in scientific circles but now it seems to be settled.
A new duck-billed dinosaurs found in Alabama suggest the species originated in the eastern U.S. Researchers say finding such rare fossils is really important for understanding how the dinosaurs spread across the world.
A new species of dinosaur thought to be the oldest Jurassic dinosaur ever found in the U.K. was named Dracoraptor hanigani or “dragon robber." Researchers say this find is remarkably valuable, as it sheds light on the diversification of dinosaurs in the early Jurassic – a period that remains rather hazy to paleontologists.
Researchers have learned a little more about how fast tyrannosaurs were, after examining dinosaur tracks preserved at Wyoming's Glenrock Paleon Museum. Experts estimate these large carnivores were able to keep up with their competition and out-run herbivorous prey.
The American Museum of Natural History in New York City has a newly unveiled dinosaur skeleton that is the world's largest. It has been identified as a new species of titanosaur, but scientists haven't named it yet.
A complete dinosaur skeleton of a baby Chasmosaurus has revealed some interesting characteristics of horned dinosaurs, which are characterized by a large bony appendage known as a frill.
A dinosaur species known Protoceratops andrewsi sported an ornamental head appendage called a frill that was likely used to attract suitable mates and helped to assert social dominance.
Paleontologists suggest recently discoverd foot scrapes across several Colorado outcrops were made by large dinosaurs that competed in dance-offs to woo their mates.
From sneezing monkeys, super-small snails, to snakes, 'ninja' sharks, soul-sucking wasps and ancient, armored sea scorpions, 2015 has been a year full of new species. In case you missed the animals recently found hidden among some of the most diverse habitats, Nature World News has a recap for you.
Dinosaurs had a banner year in 2015. Several new species were unearthed, each revealing some interesting characteristics of these fascinating prehistoric creatures.
Following the mass extinction of dinosaurs, mammals were able to rapidly diversify and radiate without the threat of predation.
An extinct group of marine reptiles known as plesiosaurs had a very unique body structure. New computer simulations suggest the animals likely used it to move through the water like a penguins.
