The fossil includes the tiny creature's original bone and flesh.
The skull of Oculudentavis, found encased in amber, provides new clues into the transition from dinosaurs to birds and may be smallest of either ever found.
Scientists claim to have found DNA in fossilised dinosaur cartilage.
A mass extinction 66 million years ago killed the non-bird dinosaurs, but plants survived.
Teeth can reveal a lot about diversity when they are reasonably well-preserved.
Dinosaurs are malleable beasts: so much so that their constant reshaping has often been driven by cultural and political trends.
These trackways offer rare insights about ancient life in a stressful, hostile environment during the Early Jurassic.
The asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs sparked global firestorms. On land, only creatures that could evade fire survived
Sometimes the only way to tell the difference between a baby dinosaur and a grown-up one is to find fossils of them both together.
How do we know that bees were around when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth? The main evidence comes from fossils – the mineralized remains of long-dead organisms.
Scientists have worked out a new way to scan beneath the ground for footprints – and it's revealing traces of an ancient world.
Every cloud has a silver lining – even the debris cloud from an asteroid impact
Scientists are left with two conclusions. Either Nessie is an eel, or she never existed at all.
The geological and biological archives of the Earth shed light on both the distant past of our planet and allow us to imagine its future.
The more we know about the animals that lived during this time, the more we can start to comprehend how species react and recover after an extinction event.
New research suggests some dinosaurs buried and protected eggs in groups.
Fossils contain a thriving world of bacteria, proteins and perhaps even organic matter from dinosaurs.
When the first Jurassic Park film came out, we didn’t know which dinosaurs had feathers. But a few years later, a very important discovery was made that changed our thinking on how dinosaurs looked.
Dinosaurs ruled the Earth for about 180 million years. But around 66 million years ago, a huge rock from outer space (called an asteroid) smashed into the Earth. Then things got worse for dinosaurs.
Growing evidence suggests that the extinction of the dinosaurs involved profound, complex and interconnected changes to the global systems that support life. Much like we are facing today.
