This is just...strange. Scientists at Yale apparently created chicken embryos with Velociraptor-like muzzles in place of beaks, according to a statement released yesterday by the university.
Feathered fossils discovered by researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing, China represent the earliest known members of the clade which produced modern birds, according to research published in Nature Communications.
The massive asteroid that crashed into the ocean near the coast of Mexico millions of years ago (and is believed to have wiped out the dinosaurs) was likely the catalyst for a series of worldwide volcanic eruptions contributed to the extinction event, new research claims.

A nearly 250 mile (400 km) wide impact zone recently discovered in Central Australia is being called the largest asteroid-caused craters ever discovered, according to research published earlier this month in the international earth sciences journal Tectonophysics.

John Harold Ostrom (February 18, 1928 – July 16, 2005) was an American Paleontologist who was greatly influential in the revival of scientific research on Dinosaurs. He is best known for demonstrating that Dinosaurs were less like contemporary reptiles but more closely related to large, flightless birds like the ostrich – a theory that holds its ground in the paleontological community to this day. John Ostrom was born and raised in Schenectady, New York. His father was a physician, and...
Robert Thomas Bakker (born March 24, 1945) is an American Paleontologist known for his contribution to the “Dinosaur Renaissance” and his support of his mentor Ostrom’s theory that some dinosaurs were warm-blooded. He specializes in the ecological context and behavior of dinosaurs. Bakker was born in Bergen County, New Jersey. As a young boy, he developed an interest in dinosaurs following his first trip to the dinosaur exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History – he was...
Ornithology, a branch of zoology, is the study of birds. The term ornithology is derived from the ancient Greek words for bird and rationale or explanation. This study differs from other sciences because amateurs often take part in studies and because birds are commonly seen. It is thought that ornithology developed in the same manner than biology developed. Drawings from the Stone Age show the earliest interest in birds and the remains of over eighty bird species have been found at excavated...
