This talks about how early mammals evolved with night vision to escape being food for small meat-eating dinosaurs.

This one talks about how humans and climate change wiped out the big ice age mammals.

Not sure if this was posted on JPL, but it won't hurt if I post it here. T. rex was descended from an Asian migrant, most likely from China. Tarbosaurus and Zhuchengtyrannus are mentioned, which makes sense because they are very closely related.

Also, another ceratopian found. This time in the badlands of Alberta.

Murusraptor, a megaraptor (and thus possible tyrannosaur) described from the Sierra Barrosa Formation. 90 million years old.

80 mya footprint found in Bolivia. It's size shows that it was made by a theropod that was T. rex size.

A Hadrosaurus specimen was found with septic arthritis. Nasty.

Dinosaurs saw shades of red and had red colorings on their bodies.

A new T. rex fossil has been found in Montana. It's 20% complete and has a very complete skull.

It's currently as the Burke Museum at Seattle, Washington and the skull is 4 ft long and a 2,500 pounds. It's being refered to as the Tutfs-Loves Tyrannosaur after the people who found it.


Also, DNA extracted from Cave Lion remains proves that it was its own species.

MOR is digging out a Triceratops named Ski Makoshika that was found in Dec 2014.

From what it says, this one's a pretty big one too.

We may have just found a tiny, piscivorous, semi-aquatic ankylosaur. Yes, really.

The German "Monster of Minden" has finally been described as a megalosaurid - and it's one of the largest theropods yet known from Europe.

So, in essence we could expect that in addition to retaining a thick covering of feathers, T. rex might have had bony ridges and knobs on it's snout? I always like it when we find little nuggets of information like this, it makes the animals more alive in my eyes.

It's actually been known that T. rex had hornlets above the eyes and nasal bumps for some time now. I think that one of the ways to identify male and female T. rexes is that the females had larger hornlets then the males, but to the best of my knowledge, I'm not sure if this is considered reliable.

It's not, it's pretty much a fabrication. A baseless claim made out of nowhere.

There is currently no way to identify the sex of a Tyrannosaurus specimen aside from checking for medullary tissue if it's present.
