Meat-eaters and plant-eaters roamed the Kamitaki region in Japan's Hyogo prefecture, dinosaur eggs indicate.
In the past decade, many of the more exciting finds in paleontology have been taking place in the Far East - in areas like the Jehol region of northeast China, which has come to be known as the country's "Jurassic Park."
New research indicates that extreme climate swings - lasting tens of millions of years - were too much for the dinos and kept them out of the tropics, solving one of science's longstanding mysteries.
Despite the fact that long-necked, herbivore dinosaurs (sauropodomorphs) were likely a common sight in the higher altitudes of Earth's supercontinent 30 million years ago, none of these species elected to head south. Now paleontologists think they have determined why it took an additional 15 million years for these massive dinos to move to the tropics.
No, you can't actually go and become a velociraptor trainer, like Hollywood actor Christ Pratt does in the new blockbuster "Jurassic World." However, you can certainly learn to be a 'raptor tracker.' In a new and intriguing study, paleontologist Scott Persons details how he and his colleagues have learned to follow 75-million-year-old dinosaur trails.
Dreadnoughtus - the long-necked herbivore recently uncovered in Patagonia - was previously thought to be the world's heaviest dinosaur, but now new findings may upend its heavyweight title.
Remnants of soft tissue, boasting similarities to red blood cells and collagen fibers, have been found in fragments of dinosaur fossils, possibly allowing scientists to better understand how these prehistoric creatures evolved to become warm-blooded.
Scientists have discovered a new dinosaur, dubbed "Hellboy," that sports some bizarre features and is shedding light on ancient horned species, new research says.
The UK's oldest sauropod dinosaur was recently discovered, oddly, when a fossil bone fell from a cliff face on the Yorkshire coast, according to a new study.
Dinosaurs are often viewed as cold-blooded prehistoric predators, however, new research shows that they were likely warm-blooded.
It's not exactly a novel idea that birds evolved from dinosaurs. A wealth of evidence saying as much was published last year alone. With this in mind, scientists have recently managed to successfully "reverse evolve" the perching toe of chicken embryos, shedding light on the gait of dinosaurs so long ago.
Scientists have managed to successfully 'reverse evolve' the beaks of chicken embryos. The result very closely resembles the maws of long-gone dinosaurs, bolstering theories about the evolution of flight and - most stunningly - the potential to recreate prehistoric ancestors.
The great Chicxulub impact is known for supposedly killing all of the dinosaurs on Earth, but new research suggests that this famous asteroid also wiped out unseen mollusks, making scientists question the role played by ocean acidification.
A bizarre new dinosaur lineage has been discovered in Chile, and though it is closely related to the famous carnivorous Tyrannosaurus rex, it curiously had an appetite for plants rather than meat.
