The skeleton was discovered in 2007 and is now a new classified species called Australotitan cooperensis.
The research, published on Monday in the journal Peer J, was done on remains found in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah.
A study estimates how many adult T. rexes could live in a given area. That enabled researchers to calculate the total number of rexes that ever lived.
The origin of the space rock that killed the dinosaurs has been a mystery. A new study suggests it wasn't an asteroid, but a comet fragment.
A four-year-old girl found a dinosaur footprint on a beach in Wales that dates back 220 million years. The print was most likely left by a small and slim dinosaur that walked on its two hind feet. Experts are calling it “the finest impression of a 215 million-year-old dinosaur print” […]
Scientists have discovered how dinosaurs peed, pooed and had sex thanks to a 130 million year old fossil. The findings from the fossil found in Liaoning, China over 20 years ago were detailed in a study. The paper focuses on the cloaca or posterior orifice of the Psittacosaurus dinosaur. Visit […]
Paleontologists have discovered a newly identified species of dinosaur called Ubijara jubatus, which is believed to have lived around 110 million years ago in what is now the northeastern part of Brazil. The chicken-sized dinosaur has “unusual” features, including a long mane of hair down its back and stiff ribbon-like […]
The “Dueling Dinosaurs” fossil is made up of intertwined T. rex and triceratops skeletons. The nonprofit organisation Friends of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences bought it for $US6 million. The museum will display the fossils starting in 2022. Researchers there will examine the bones in detail and investigate […]
Jenna Krupar and Josh Rettig took engagement photos in giant inflatable dinosaur costumes. Krupar, who has loved dinosaurs since the first grade and “has never really grown out of it,” told Insider both she and her fiancé wanted to do something different for their portrait session. “It’s nice to see […]
A 67-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton named Stan sold for $US31.8 million at Christie’s auction house in New York City on Tuesday, making it the most expensive dinosaur skeleton ever sold. An anonymous buyer won the auction after 20 minutes of bidding. Only 50 or so T. rex skeletons have ever […]
Earlier this month, paleontologists announced the discovery of the largest soft-shelled egg ever found. The researchers think the football-sized specimen, which was discovered in Antarctica, came from a giant, swimming reptile. But other scientists think the giant egg could have been laid by an early dinosaur. Visit Business Insider’s homepage […]
Scientists discovered fossilized eggs from two different dinosaur species in the Gobi Desert. Unlike previously discovered dinosaurs eggs, these eggs had soft-shells, like turtle eggs. New research posits that the earliest dinosaurs laid soft-shelled eggs, not hard-shelled ones. Another new study reveals the largest soft-shelled egg ever discovered in the […]
Paleontologists discovered a trackway of fossilized footprints in South Korea that are more than 110 million years old. The footprints came from a 10-foot-long crocodile ancestor called a crocodylomorph, which walked only on its hind legs. The finding helps put a debate to rest: In 2012, scientists suggested that similar […]
SpaceX launched two NASA astronauts – and a sequined dinosaur plushie – into space on Saturday in the first-ever commercial human spaceflight. Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley both have young sons who are “super interested in dinosaurs,” Behnken said, so they gathered all the dinosaurs in their houses and […]
The massive asteroid that struck present-day Mexico 66 million years ago contributed to the extinction of the dinosaurs and 75% of life on Earth. A new study shows that the asteroid hit at “one of the deadliest possible angles.” Because it struck at a 60-degree angle, the impact released billions […]
Paleontologists have discovered the oldest known tyrannosaur species seen in North America. The researchers describe the dinosaur in a new study – they named it Thanatotheristes degrootorum, which means “reaper of death” in Greek. The predator lived 12 million years before the T. rex did and was 10 feet shorter […]
Paleontologists have uncovered countless dinosaur fossils since the original “Jurassic Park” movie came out in 1993. The discoveries have changed their understanding of how dinosaurs looked, sounded, and acted. Most of the creatures we see on screen throughout the franchise are not scientifically accurate. New research shows that dilophosaurus – […]
