New research is upending more than 100 years of thought regarding the dinosaurs known as Triceratops and Torosaurus.
A Canadian paleontologist is taking his hunt for prehistoric reptiles from the dust and rubble of intense archeological digs to the pristine facilities of a genetic research laboratory. His goal? To tweak the DNA of developing chicken embryos to create a dinosaur, Ã la Jurassic Park.
A paleontologist at North Carolina State University says she has discovered new evidence to support the idea that soft tissue and proteins can be preserved over long periods of geological time after a protein sequence was recovered from an 80 million-year-old duck-billed hadrosaur.
By James Thalman Deseret News As news of a remarkably well-preserved cache of dinosaur bones was being heralded in media outlets around the world, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management paleontologist who had announced the find was taking a breath and urging others to do the same.

A retired pastor and his son unearthed the skull and lower jaw of a sea reptile believed to be about 70 million years old, Montana State University said.
New methods of analyzing fossils have scientists arguing more than ever about whether Tyrannosaurus rex was a lumbering scavenger or a swift and agile predator.
John R. “Jack” Horner (born June 15, 1946) is an American paleontologist known for his research on dinosaur growth, and for discovering evidence that some dinosaurs nested and cared for their young. He is perhaps the most famous paleontologist due to his role as technical advisor for all three Jurassic Park films, and his providing inspiration for Dr. Alan Grant, the film's lead character. He also advised on the FOX television show Terra Nova. Horner was born and raised in the small...
Kritosaurus, meaning "separated lizard" (sometimes misinterpreted as "noble lizard"), is a genus of duckbilled dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period (73 million years ago). It lived, possibly, in both North and South America. It was discovered in 1904 by Barnum Brown near Ojo Alamo, New Mexico. The initial discovery could not be verified age-wise, but by 1916 Brown was able to determine it came from the late Campanian age of the Kirtland Formation. It was initially named Nectosaurus, but...
Maiasaura, meaning "good mother lizard", is a genus of dinosaur from the Campanian age of the Upper Cretaceous Period (74 million years ago). It lived in what is now the state of Montana in the United States. It was discovered by paleontologist Jack Horner, whom was a paleontology advisor for the Jurassic Park movies. It was also co-discovered by Robert Makela. The dinosaur was named after finding a series of nests with egg and hatchling remains at Egg Mountain, in rocks of the Two Medicine...
