I know that it's late. But we still have important stuff here.

Famous dinosaur artist Gregory S. Paul says that T. rex was 3 different species. Rex, Impererator (Latin for emperor) , and Regina (Latin for queen).

In fairness, a lot of people disagree with this.



Leg of a Thescelosaurus found with skin still on it found in North Dakota has been dated to the exact day the dinosaurs died out.

Should have posted this in the first post, since it was found in very early March.

The oldest known member of the stegosaur family, found in Mid Juassic rock formation inside China has been named and described as Bashanosaurus. It was just 9 ft long and the one found may have been a juvenile.

The dinosaurs survived their first major threat, a volcanic winter at the end of the Triassic, due to being warm blooded and having feathers.

Pleisosaur fossils found in the Kem Kem Formation (Morraco). This proves that some did live in fresh water.

This is also the same place where the Spinosaurus neotype was found. So it's fair to say that Spinosaurus did eat meat after all.

30 ft mosasaur skeleton found in North Texas. It has been dated as being 80 million years old.

That one study that said that T. rex was really 3 different species got debunked.

A new 33ft long Late Triassic theropod found in Sweden.

Theropods that size in the Late Triassic were always considered, but now we got proof. A bit odd that it was found in Sweden of all places.
