The name says it all.

A Florida State University research team says it took 3-6 months before a baby dinosaur hatched from it's egg, depending on which kind of dinosaur it was.

90 mya Zuniceratops footprints as well of that of tyrannosaur footprints found in New Mexico.

This also helps prove that tyrannosaurs did hunt in packs. Or at least family packs.

Not sure if this counts, but might as well. Researchers say they have found Ice Age era genes in Siberian Moose.

I've heard that thing about dinosaur eggs taking up to 6 months to hatch. Apparently, this is now a new theory as to why the non-avian dinosaurs went extinct.

Scientists say that woolly mammoths are a few years away from making a comeback via genetic engineering.

A new species of an ornithichian dinosaur from Patagonia, this one being from the Jurassic age, has been described as Isaberrysaura mollensis.

The part about Mammoths being closer to being genetically cloned is very exciting! I know we've had four movies telling us why resurrected prehistoric life in modern times is NOT a good idea, but the temptation is incredibly strong all the same.

I don't think that resurrected mammoths would pose nearly as much of a problem like dinosaurs would. Yes, you'd have to have some sort of preserves and stuff, but other then that, I don't see many problems. Besides, humans were a huge factor in killing them off. The way I see it, we have a moral obligation to bring back any animal that we have rendered extinct. That includes the Passenger Pigeon, Steller's Sea Cow, and the Tasmanian Wolf, although that one could still be alive with all the sightings that have happened.

One of the oldest described basal titanosaur ever recorded, that was found in Gondwana is named Triunfosaurus leonardii.

It's based on not very much though. One would have thought that more remains would have been found.

That I know of, I think it has been done to some Confuciusornis fossils and some pterosaurs. Otherwise this is a pretty new development, so I would expect to see more in the future.

The final Woolly Mammoths died out due to a 'genomic meltdown'.

105,000 to 125,000 year old human skulls found in China are half human and half Neanderthal. Possibly a new species.

Chenanisaurus barbaricus, a new abelisaurid theropod, has been described from a jawbone and teeth. It was found in the Ouled Abdoun Basin in Morocco, North Africa and is supposed to be one of the larger abelisaurs.

Here's some really big paleo-news.

A new speices of Daspletosaurus has been found. Also, it was found with with natural armor protection: Sheaths of horn, armored skin, and large flat scales. In other words, it had head/face protection like a crocodile does.




Also, Utahraptor was much bigger then we thought.

Looks like Jurassic Park managed to get at least one thing right about T. rex, even if it was their reptillian lips or lack thereof. Razz

With the increased stocky frame of Utahraptor, it was probably not as fast as some other larger carnivores, I'm not even sure if it could jump with a a build like that. Still, a truly ferocious looking predator!

I can still see these 'new' Utahraptors running for short periods of time, a la T. rex. Not to mention 3 of these, possibly even a pair of these taking out an Acrocanthosaurus.

A species of sauropod, most likely a relative of Camarasaurus has been described as Moabosaurus. It lived in the Early Cretaceous 125 mya. It's also based on a lot of bones. At just 32 feet in length, it's a bit short for a sauropod.

After being in plain sight for a while, a new diplodocid sauropod dinosaur is described as Galeamopus pabsti. It was over 66ft long, weighed 15 tons and lived in the Late Jurassic 150 mya.

A 75 million year old anklyosaur, one of the most complete and best preserved ever found is named Zuul crurivastator. Yes, it's named after the demon dog in the original Ghostbusters movie. Crurivastator is translated into 'destroyer of shins'.

It was 20 ft long and 5,500 pounds. Just under 3 tons.

Super well preserved new species of nodosaur found in Canada. It's so well preserved that it looks like a statue.




It's 18 feet long and 3000 pounds and was 110 million years old, though another site said it was 90mya.


Here's the National Geographic link more even more photographs.
