An international team of scientists has discovered what they believe to be the earliest example of social behavior in bird-hipped dinosaurs, along with a brand new species, in the Andes Mountains of Venezuela.
For the last 15 summers, research teams from the Museum of the Rockies have been exploring the badlands of Eastern Montana to excavate dinosaur bones from the Hell Creek Formation. Those teams have made many exciting and important discoveries regarding some of the last dinosaurs to walk our planet.
While dinosaurs may have disappeared from the face of the Earth, their lineage has survived in the form of birds and new research has found that both dinosaurs and birds evolved into smaller and smaller sizes – potentially contributing to their success.

A new species of dinosaur recently discovered in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana has been described as the youngest known dromaeosaurid and was a close cousin of the Velociraptor.
Paleontologist say they have discovered the fossil of a massive new relative of Triceratops in Utah. The 2-ton, 15-foot long Nasutoceratops titusi had the familiar bony frill at the base of its skull, an oversized nose and horns that curved out and forward like a steer's.
Three Triceratops skeletons, one of them probably a juvenile, were found last month on a Wyoming ranch in Newcastle, about 200 miles north of Cheyenne. At least one of the three met a gruesome end at the hands of a terrifying predator around 67 million years ago.
Othniel Charles Marsh (October 29, 1831 – March 18, 1899) was an American paleontologist, specializing primarily in vertebrates. He is highly renowned as one of the most prominent scientists of his time, having discovered and described dozens of new species. Marsh is also credited with developing what is currently the most widely accepted theory of the origin of birds. Marsh was born in Lockport, New York, to a family of moderate means. Thanks to the generosity of his uncle, George...
Styracosaurus, meaning “spiked lizard” from the Ancient Greek styrax “spike at the butt-end of a spear-shaft” and sauros “lizard” was a genus of herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaur from the Cretaceous Period, about 76.5 to 75 million years ago. It had four to six long horns, stretching from its neck frill, a smaller horn on each cheek, and a single horn jutting out from its nose, which may have been up to 2 feet long and 6 inches wide. The function/functions of these horns and frills...
Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period, approximately 68 to 65.5 million years ago in what is currently North America. It was one of the last non-avian dinosaur genera to emerge before the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. The term Triceratops, which in literal translation means “three-horned face”, comes from the Greek tri, meaning “three”, keras, meaning “horn”, and ops, meaning...
Protoceratops, meaning “first horned face,” is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaur from the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period (83 to 70 million years ago) in what is now Mongolia. The first specimen was discovered by photographer JB Shackelford in 1922 in the Gobi desert while working with an expedition looking for human ancestors. The photographer did not uncover any human remains but did find many specimens of fossilized Protoceratops, along with other dinosaurs of...
Torosaurus, meaning “perforated lizard,” is a genus of ceratopsid dinosaur from the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period (70 to 65 million years ago). Torosaurus is often mis-referred to as “bull” (from the Latin word taurus) lizard. But its actual name comes from the Greek word toreo, meaning “to perforate or pierce.” Its name is in reference to the window-like holes found in the elongated frill, which have traditional served to distinguish it from the solid...
