90 mya Zuniceratops footprints as well of that of tyrannosaur footprints found in New Mexico.

This also helps prove that tyrannosaurs did hunt in packs. Or at least family packs.

Not sure if this counts, but might as well. Researchers say they have found Ice Age era genes in Siberian Moose.

I've heard that thing about dinosaur eggs taking up to 6 months to hatch. Apparently, this is now a new theory as to why the non-avian dinosaurs went extinct.

Huge News. 195 mya old Lufengosaurus collagen and iron-rich proteins found. And this is an Early Jurassic dinosaur, too.

A new species of an ornithichian dinosaur from Patagonia, this one being from the Jurassic age, has been described as Isaberrysaura mollensis.

The part about Mammoths being closer to being genetically cloned is very exciting! I know we've had four movies telling us why resurrected prehistoric life in modern times is NOT a good idea, but the temptation is incredibly strong all the same.

I don't think that resurrected mammoths would pose nearly as much of a problem like dinosaurs would. Yes, you'd have to have some sort of preserves and stuff, but other then that, I don't see many problems. Besides, humans were a huge factor in killing them off. The way I see it, we have a moral obligation to bring back any animal that we have rendered extinct. That includes the Passenger Pigeon, Steller's Sea Cow, and the Tasmanian Wolf, although that one could still be alive with all the sightings that have happened.

One of the oldest described basal titanosaur ever recorded, that was found in Gondwana is named Triunfosaurus leonardii.

It's based on not very much though. One would have thought that more remains would have been found.

That I know of, I think it has been done to some Confuciusornis fossils and some pterosaurs. Otherwise this is a pretty new development, so I would expect to see more in the future.

New discovery of plant that's 400 million years older than the plant previously thought to be oldest on Earth.

Looks like Jurassic Park managed to get at least one thing right about T. rex, even if it was their reptillian lips or lack thereof. Razz

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!
