Academic rivalries can sometimes result in some pretty impressive science. Here’s how a war between two paleontologists ended up yielding over 140 new species — but also destroyed a lot of things on its way. »
The omnipresent practice of denying girls action figures has somehow hit a new low. Remember how in the Jurassic World movie, most of the dinosaurs—especially Chris Pratt’s Raptor squad—were constantly referred to as girls?

Paleontologists in Alberta have described a fiercely intimidating Cretaceous Period dinosaur that featured a distinct set of facial horns and spines at the back of its skull.
Back in 2008, paleontologists discovered what appeared to be the fossilized egg of a horned dinosaur. A new study has re-identified it as belonging to — get this — a bird. So how could the original analysis have been so wrong? »
The first real trailer for Disney-Pixar’s long-awaited new movie The Good Dinosaur is here, although I feel like it should really be titled The Really Lucky Dinosaur, seeing as it’s a “what if?” tale where a certain asteroid never hit Earth and wiped them all out.

Among newly discovered, 160-million-year-old, fossils in northeastern China is one of Yi qi (“Yi” meaning “wing” and “qi” meaning “strange”), a pigeon-sized dinosaur without feathered wings. Instead, Yi qi has a long bone extending from the wrist, which resembles the structure of bat wings. »

Meet Chilesaurus diegosuarezi, a newly described dinosaur discovered by a seven-year-old boy in Chile.

Universal brought out its big star Chris Pratt to show off a whole new sizzle reel for Jurassic World. And what I saw was definitely better than the earlier released clip, mainly because it was very dinosaur-heavy. And it helped the evil smart dinosaur a little as well (a very little).
