A new study of more than 6,000 marine fossils from Antarctica reveals that the mass extinction event, which killed dinosaurs, was sudden and just as deadly to life in the polar regions.
Researchers concluded that dinosaurs may have lips.
Scientists have discovered a fossil of a new ancient marine animal that resembles present-day dolphins. The said fossil gives a hint of how marine reptiles survived mass extinction 250 million years ago.
A team of international scientist coming from Australia, South Africa and United States have unearthed a ton of fossils in the James Ross Island in Antartica.
Endangered species and extinct animals have always made man curious, especially the dinosaurs. Thanks to new techniques and more advanced technologies, it is possible to keep exploring more and more about animals from past centuries and what they can tell us about the world and its history.
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.
