A new year for new discoveries.

A skull nearly a meter in length that was found 60 years ago has been identified as Protoichthyosaurus prostaxalis. The skull was dated to be 200 mya, so Early Jurassic.

It looks like the prehistoric whale, Basilosaurus, was an apex predator that liked to chomp the heads of its prey.

In other words, it was a 50 ft long Orca that aimed for the head.

Hmmm, if this is so, that could mean that most if not all dinosaurs had some form of integument!

At least when it comes to theropods anyway.


A new theory says that tectonic shifts, not the meteorite/comet caused the death of the non-avian dinosaurs.

A new tyrannosaur has been found.

It has been named and described as Moros intrepidus and was found around the same area that Siats, the super allosaur was found which was 96 million years old. It was around the size of a mule deer and the specimen was mostly full grown.

It looks like the T. rex known as Scotty was larger then Sue.

I'm pretty sure that Sue is longer, though.

It says here that Scotty was 13 meters long, while Sue was only 12.3 meters long, so it looks like Scotty holds that record too.

Nice to see that my home country now holds the Rex record Very Happy

13 meters = sightly over 42.6 feet long. That is huge. In one of my books, it said that Sue was longer but Scotty was overall larger, so it does make sense for Scotty to be longer then Sue as well.
