i suspected as much--i'd glanced over the article the other day (it was mentioned in the prehistoric animal thread on AH.com, too) and didn't see any genus names in there at all. i'm interested in seeing what they eventually name this new animal Smile

New research has shown that part of the reason why the KT event was so bad was because the asteroid/meteorite that hit Earth winded up hitting a sulfur rich location.

It was a really pleasant surprise to see Greg Erickson in this video and sharing his findings in this article. I remember first seeing him in the 'Making-Of' documentary for 'Walking With Dinosaurs', he was quite young then. And then I saw him again in the Horizon episode 'T. Rex: Warrior or Wimp?', there he was testing the bite forces of crocodiles to determine the strength of a T. rex bite force, but estimates were not conclusive at that point, with bite force estimates as high as 40,000 pounds of force.

As much as it is a nostalgic feeling, it makes me feel old as well. Like seeing Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum or Laura Dern aged up from their film counterparts.

With such an incredible bite force that exceeds that of similar giant theropods like Giganotosaurus, I wouldn't be surprised if a single T. rex bite would be enough to mortally wound a Sauropod, if it were faced with such a challenge.

Sidiiyazhi abini is a new bird found in New Mexico that was over 62 million years old, proves that birds evolved fist after the non-avian dinosaurs died out.

So a new study claims that T. rex couldn't run beyond 17 mph.

And I call this bullcrap. We know that hadrosaurs and big ceratopians could go up to 25-30 mph. We also know that T. rex hunted healthy prey via semi-healed injuries that those dinosaurs suffered due to T. rex bites. So T. rex had to have been capable of some bursts of speed.

The only way how this makes sense is if it was specially adapted to hunt the 90+ foot long sauropod, Alamosaurus, which was much slower. And as of now, that dinosaur only got as far north as Central Utah. And T. rex had a much larger range/distribution.

A new species of troodont found in the Red Deer River Valley has been named Albertavenator curriei, after the famous Canadian paleontologist, Dr. Philip J. Currie. It was found in rock formations that are 71 million years old.
