An analysis of fossilized teeth from dinosaurs in the western United States has provided the first concrete evidence that sauropods undertook seasonal migrations in search of food.
Scientists have found a way to take the temperature of dinosaurs that have been extinct for millions of years.
Researchers retrieved bones from two incomplete skeletons of an adult and juvenile dinosaur from a previously looted quarry in Utah.

By Brian Maffly, The Salt Lake Tribune Jun. 23--HANKSVILLE -- An ancient river, which probably dried up one season, only to swirl and surge with monsoonal violence the next, once braided through this area just southeast of what is now Utah's San Rafael Swell.

Diplodocus, meaning “double beam,” is a genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaur from the Late Jurassic Period of what is now western North America (about 150 million years ago). The first fossils of this dinosaur were discovered in 1877 by S.W. Williston. Its generic name was coined by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1878. Diplodocus is one of the more common dinosaur fossils found in the Upper Morrison Formation, a sequence of shallow marine and alluvial sediments deposited about 150 million...
Camarasaurus, meaning "chambered lizard" (chambered referring to holes in its vertebrae), was a genus of quadrupedal, herbivorous dinosaur from the Late Jurassic Period 155 to 145 million years ago. It was first found in 1877 when a few scattered vertebrae were discovered in Colorado by Oramel W. Lucas. The bones were sold to Edward Drinker Cope and named by him later that year. A more complete fossil was discovered in 1925 by Charles W. Gilmore. The Morrison Formation, along the eastern...
