Multiple baby duck-billed dinosaurs, identified as Saurolophus angustirostris, were recently excavated from “Dragon's Tomb" in Mongolia.
Researchers from the University of Bonn suggest that a prehistoric mammal, Spinolestes, may have suffered from hair loss. This fungal disease is commonly seen in many of the species' modern descendants.
It turns out that Jurassic hunters may have really been the terrifying sprinters that Hollywood has made them out to be. New research has revealed that careful body temperature regulation had many dinosaurs 'running hot,' but only on sunny days.
Ancient birds had an intricate arrangement of muscles and ligaments that controlled the main feathers of their wings. This suggests that some were able to fly as well as modern birds.
When an asteroid impacted Earth 66 million years ago, many species, including dinosaurs, faced extinction. But a furry beaver-like species actually survived and became top dog in the newly available environment.
Using Maiasaura fossil bones, researchers recently revealed the most detailed life history of any dinosaur known.
Dinosaur extinction was caused by an asteroid impact 66 million years ago that also triggered a series of volcanic eruptions, say researchers from the University of California Berkeley.
Crocodilians include a variety of modern and ancient alligators, crocodiles and their relatives. A team of researchers recently examined how the diverse species responded to past climate changes and how they might cope in the future.
A new hadrosaur species, a type of duck-billed dinosaur, was excavated from Alaska. This species represents the northernmost dinosaur known to date and likely endured dark winter months and snowy conditions, researchers say.
Editorial: While it's not a pit of tar in a Los Angeles park, it may be nearly as good in terms of providing a predator record of the Jurassic period. Paleontologists will continue to study this predator pit in Utah, first explored in 1928. Today they're using new technology, photogammetry.
Sixty-six million years ago, a massive asteroid struck Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. As a result, the Earth changed forever, spelling the end of the dinosaurs and ushering in a new age where other animals could flourish. Now new research has revealed that it wasn't mammals who inherited the Earth, but fish.
Jutting out of rock in a hiking area of Alaska's Talkeetna Mountains were the bones of an ancient, long-necked swimmer. A fossil-finder recently ran across them.
It turns out that despite what Hollywood would have you thinking, it wasn't dinosaurs who were evolving in the Jurassic world. New research has determined that by the end of that iconic period, mammals were evolving at ten times the average rate, leading to an explosion of new adaptation and species.
A new, near-complete fossil of a velociraptor relative tells a lot about film dinosaurs versus the very large banty-rooster truth.
