Two recent discoveries in Alberta and Uzbekistan have identified the top predators in those regions during the Cretaceous period. Fossils that had been in storage for years included the jawbones.
The lack of large numbers of fossils makes it hard to study sexual dimorphism in dinosaurs. But a new statistical approach offers insight into this question and others across science.
Ever since moviegoers saw the first ‘Jurassic Park,’ millions have wondered if scientists could make a dinosaur in the lab.
Finding a fossil tooth embedded in bone is always great news for palaeontologists, as it is the gateway to some otherwise out-of-reach understanding of the behaviour of extinct animals.
So how accurate is the T. rex’s running speed in that famous Jurassic Park jeep-chase scene?
Using the incredible wealth of fossil data and a modern ecological theory, researchers estimated population density for the extinct apex predator.
66 million years ago, birds survived the calamity that wiped out all prehistoric dinosaurs. But could birds once again evolve into their long lost ancestors?
A consultant on Chris Packham’s latest dinosaur show about Tyrannosaurus Rex explains how they kept it entertaining but accurate.
Fossils discovered in Uzbekistan help tell the story of how T. Rex evolved to become the biggest predator ever to live on land.
Ever wondered what it would like if you carved up the biggest land-based carnivore of all time?
