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.
Stegosaurus were known for their spiked tails and armor-like exterior, and new research shows that their iconic bony plates may have determined the sex of these dinosaurs, according to new research.
About 65 million years ago, an asteroid crash supposedly wiped out all the dinosaurs on Earth. Now, scientists may soon finally solve the mystery behind this dino-killing crash.
They weren't exactly there when it happened, so scientists were excited when they uncovered the birthing mystery of mighty mosasaurs, gigantic marine lizards that once roamed the ancient oceans.
We all know that the age of the dinosaurs must have been a hostile time on Earth, and now there's proof, as scientists have recently discovered evidence of bloody dino battles that took place.
The famous, long-extinct Brontosaurus may make a comeback - or, at least its name will, according to a new study.
An ancient and unusual lobster-like predator was recently discovered in Canada, in a fossil treasure trove dating as far back as 508 million years ago - well before the first dinosaurs walked the Earth, according to a new study.
Scientists have discovered what they call a "super salamander" species in Portugal that was a top predator more than 200 million years ago, and it just may be one of the strangest creatures to ever terrorize the Earth.
Scientists have just discovered a new 9-foot-long crocodilian ancestor that was once one of North America's top predators, dominating the Earth before dinosaurs came on the scene, new research indicates.
Dark matter may have been responsible for the comet strike that killed off the dinosaurs 66 million years ago, as well as other mass extinction events and geologic upheavals, according to one scientist.
You may think that people were the original psychedelic sojourners, 'tripping' on acid and mushrooms in a time of spirituality and rock n' roll. However, fossil evidence now indicates that dinosaurs could have been tripping too, albeit indivertibly, 100 million years ago.
