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.
A new, near-complete fossil of a velociraptor relative tells a lot about film dinosaurs versus the very large banty-rooster truth.
Our writer James Sullivan talks about how a wooly mammoth could potentially roam Siberia, and the ethics of such cases.
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."
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.
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.
