Dinosaur egg study shows surprising and new skull features

Today were taking a peek at a dinosaur egg that was part of a study published today in Current Biology. This dinosaur egg is one of a collection of eggs that were found in Patagonia, Argentina. The difference between this egg and the other eggs that were discovered and analyzed in the past is the near-intact embryonic skull inside.

76 million year old dinosaur cancer could change modern treatment

76 million year old dinosaur cancer could change modern treatment

There are late diagnoses and there are long overdue diagnoses, and figuring out a dinosaur that died 76 million years ago had aggressive cancer probably falls into the latter category. New research used modern diagnostics on very old bones, to figure out that a long-dead Centrosaurus apertus had the first identified case of dinosaur cancer.

Researchers discover tiny dinosaur relative that lived 237 million years ago

Researchers have discovered a tiny relative to the dinosaur near Madagascar that lived about 237 million years ago. The tiny dinosaur relative is a newly described species called Kongonaphon kely, translating to "tiny bug slayer." The small dinosaur relative would have been only about four-inches tall.

Nodosaur’s ‘exquisitely’ preserved stomach contents reveal last meal

Nodosaur’s ‘exquisitely’ preserved stomach contents reveal last meal

The armored dinosaur known as the Borealopelta markmitchelli -- a nodosaur -- was the subject of a study recently published in Royal Society Open Science. The researchers focused on the best-preserved nodosaur specimen, finding preserved stomach contents that reveal what this particular dinosaur ate. The stomach contents had around the same mass as a soccer ball and are described as "exquisitely-preserved."

Dinosaur killing asteroid hit the Earth at the “deadliest possible” angle

Dinosaur killing asteroid hit the Earth at the “deadliest possible” angle

New computer simulations from Imperial College London have looked at the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs. The simulations reveal that the asteroid that struck the Earth hit at the "deadliest possible" angle. Scientists say that the new computer simulations show that the asteroid hit the Earth at an angle of about 60 degrees, maximizing the amount of climate-changing gases thrown into the upper atmosphere.

Tiny ancient skull belongs to the smallest dinosaur

Tiny ancient skull belongs to the smallest dinosaur

The piece of amber seen here is preserving an ancient and very tiny skull inside that scientists say is probably the smallest dinosaur ever discovered. The skull belongs to a tiny dino that weighed about 2 grams and is about two centimeters long. The bird-like skull suggests that the creature was about the size of the bee hummingbird.

Cave ceiling dinosaur footprints cold case solved, decades later

Cave ceiling dinosaur footprints cold case solved, decades later

New clues were recently uncovered in a decades-old cold case surrounding a set of dinosaur prints in the ceiling of a cave. The prints belonged to what was previously believe to be a four-footed carnivore. This was an astounding discovery at the time - there was just one issue: No other evidence of this creature appeared in several decades after the discovery of these prints in the 1950s. New clues revealed the reason why no other evidence of the existence of these creatures ever appeared...

New species of carnivorous dinosaur discovered in Utah

Paleontologists have announced that a new species of dinosaur has been discovered in Utah. The new species is named Allosaurus jimmadseni and was discovered in Dinosaur National Monument in Utah in the early '90s. The new species is a meat-eater, according to scientists. The team estimates that the dino was about 26 to 29 feet long.

New dinosaur skull discovery may change 200 years of assumptions

New dinosaur skull discovery may change 200 years of assumptions

If we look to the 1819 discovery of dinosaur fossils by William Buckland, we've got almost exactly 200 years of modern dinosaur bone hunting by humans. In that time, many assumptions have been made - as is necessary when it comes to putting together pieces of puzzles that are millions of years old, and long since dead. Remember today, because today may be the first day in a new major wave of change in this field.

Groundbreaking fossils reveal how life retook Earth after the dinosaurs

Groundbreaking fossils reveal how life retook Earth after the dinosaurs

An incredible fossil haul unearthed in Colorado could finally bridge the gap between the extinction of the dinosaurs and the reboot of life after that epoch-ending asteroid impact. Helping to answer questions which have long stumped scientists, the new findings pinpoint nature's mysterious recovery immediately after three out of every four living organisms was suddenly killed.
