A suite of five ancient crocs, including one with teeth like boar tusks and another with a snout like a duck's bill, have been discovered in the Sahara by National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Paul Sereno.
Australian researchers have created the first genetic linkage map for the giant saltwater crocodile, aiding in its genetic sequencing, the researchers said. The crocodile is a very charismatic organism, but with surprisingly very little genetic or genomic resources available prior to this map, University of Sydney genomics researcher Lee Miles said. The research will also help in understanding the molecular evolution of reptilian and other genomes of egg-laying animals, including mammals and...
Paleontologists have discovered fossils in Africaâ€™s Sahara Desert of two new meat-eating dinosaurs that walked the earth 110 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period.
