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.

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.

Camarasaurus had gums in its mouth.

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.


Paleo discoveries of 2017. - Page 2 NGM_0617_MM8543_Nodosaur_01-1024x683

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.

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.

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.

According to Thomas Holtz and David Hone, T. rex really didn't need to be fast to be a dominant predator.

Holtz also makes the point that the study is flawed since it doesn't take into account the speed of it's prey.

That one mummified nodosaur has been named Borealopelta markmitchelli. It also used camouflage to help hide from predators.

It's interesting that even armored dinosaurs used camouflage.

It's interesting that even armored dinosaurs used camouflage.

I always love it when new discoveries shed light on what colour dinosaurs would have had when they were alive, ten years ago we didn't know that Microraptor's feathers were an iridescent black, and now we know that Ankylosaurs needed camouflage to avoid large theropods. We tended to think of them as the "invulnerable" herbivores, but I think that honour might go to Triceratops if this evolutionary trait is any indication.
