Here's an interesting article about how the Tasmanian Wolf/Tiger might still be alive and how people are still searching for it after it was declared extinct in the mid-1930's.

It looks like dinosaur tongues were all largely the same with only slight differences.

This talks about ceratosaur evolution and their abelisaur relatives.

How so. I'm curious. Is it because they are related to Ceratosaurus at all?




This article talks about a recently found complete and well preserved Triceratops skull that was just dug up.

HUGE NEWS!


The Gobi Desert continues to be a friend to paleontology as many finds, including a new species of dinosaur and remains of Tarbosaurus Bataar/Tyrannosaurus Bataar, possibly the largest ever found have been found and are being examined in the capital of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar.

The TLW novel Carnotaurus really captivated me. When I started looking into them I fell in love with the family/group. Their unique appearances and the theories on how they behaved/hunted ect.

Makes sense. The abelisaurs always were a mystery group of theropods untill recently. And Carnotaurus was and still is an odd theropod. It really was nice to see it in this movie.

Abelisaurids are basically walking mouths with legs, and they look so ridiculous it's actually awesome. My 3rd favorite theropod group.

Indeed. People mock T. rex for having short arms, but at least it used them. The Abelisaur family didn't really need them at all.

In any case, it's going to be fascinating to see how large an abelisaur can get if we find the one who made this footprint.

A new scientific paper came out that talked about the distribution of the charcarodonotosaurs, or the super allosaurs as I call them, in North Africa during the Middle Cretaceous.

A new species of ankylosaur has been found and described in Utah. It has been named Akainacephalus johnsoni. It's 76 million years old, the oldest ankylosaur found int Late Cretaceous era rocks and is more closely related to Asian ankylosaurs.


It's size is 13 ft long and 3.5 ft high.

A new short necked sauropod from China, Lingwulong shenqi—the “amazing dragon of Lingwu”, has been described. It's 34 feet long and about ten tons and from the Middle Jurassic period.

It actually amazes me how diverse and unique Sauropods were in reality, considering everyone in the general public only knows about "brontosaurus" (in rare cases brachiosaurus and diplodocus). Truly an underapprecicated order imo. This find is pretty fantastic, even though it's like the 10000th chinese dinosaur to be named "_long" Laughing

With Alamosaurus winding up being much bigger then what we thought (at least 80 ft long and 50 tons, but the average is 90+ feet and 85-90 tons with some saying 100 ft long and 90-100 tons), Apatosaurus still being famous, and other new sauropods being found, not to mention toys of different sauropods coming out since the late 2000's, I honestly see that mindset changing.

A giant foot of a brachiosaur, maybe that of Brachiosaurus itself, that was found in Wyoming in the Morrison Formation has been called that largest dinosaur foot of all time.

Here's the actual paper.
