A fossil from a species of dinosaur previously believed to exist only in the northern hemisphere has been found in Australia, giving scientists new leads into the history of dinosaurs, reports the AFP news agency. The 125-million-year-old neck vertebrae of a fossil discovered in Victoria is identical to that of a Baryonyx, a fish-eating dinosaur from the Spinosaurid family, a family of dinosaurs that were thought only to exist north the equator. The finding suggests that northern and...

Paleontologists have discovered fossils in Africa's Sahara Desert of two new meat-eating dinosaurs that walked the earth 110 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period.   The dinosaurs were discovered in 2000 during an expedition led by University of Chicago paleontologist Paul Sereno.  Sereno and co-author Stephen Brusatte of the University of Bristol reported the discovery in the journal Acta Palaeontologica Polonica. In their report, they said the fossils provide a...

By Lipkin, Christine Sereno, Paul C; Horner, John R INTRODUCTION OSSIFIED CLAVICLES, either as paired elements or as a median furcula, have been recorded in all major clades of dinosaurs, including ornithischians, sauropodomorphs, and theropods (Bryant and Russell, 1993). Nearly all but the most basal theropods, Eoraptor lunensis and Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis, have an ossified furcula including coelophysids (Downs, 2000; Tykoski et al., 2002; Carrano et al., 2005), allosauroids (Chure...

It was first discovered in clay pits just south of Dorking, England, and later also found in northern Spain and Portugal. Only one species is known, B. walkeri, named in honor of its discoverer, amateur fossil hunter William Walker. Walker discovered the creature when he came across an enormous claw sticking out...

Irritator lived during the Albian stage of the Cretaceous Period around 110 million years ago and is a genus of spinosaurid dinosaur. It was estimated to be about 26 feet long with an unusually shaped crest at the rear of its head. According to research, it likely ate fish, as well as other carrion. Only one fossil has been found: an 80 centimeter long skull found in the Brazilian Santana formation, which resembles the fossils of the Suchomimus and Spinosaurus. This skull was tampered with by...
