Dinosaur ‘Mummy’ Unveiled With Skin And Guts Intact

ou can’t even see its bones, yet scientists are hailing it as perhaps the best-preserved dinosaur specimen ever unearthed. That’s because, 110 million years later, those bones remain covered by the creature’s intact skin and armor. Indeed, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Alberta, Canada recently unveiled a dinosaur so well-preserved that many have taken to calling it not a fossil, but an honest-to-goodness “dinosaur mummy.” With the creature’s skin, armor, and even some of its guts intact, researchers are astounded at its nearly unprecedented level of preservation. “We…

Dinosaur Lightning Takes a Bite Out of Arizona Sky

Are you afraid of lightning? No? Well, what about extreme electrical charges that take the shape of carnivorous dinosaurs? This natural wonder comes to the DNews Earth desk today via the Department of Interior, which tweeted the picture below of a lightning bolt over Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona: The National Park Service’s Hallie Larsen captured the shot, which looks just like a T. Rex, last seen roaming western North American about 70 million years ago. Lightning strikes can take all sorts of shapes, according to the web site…

200 Million Years Old Dinosaur Egg Hatches in Berlin Museum

A malfunction with the heating system of the Museum für Naturkunde (or Museum of Natural History) had some unforeseen consequences, as a Gasosaurus egg dating from the Jurassic period ended up hatching, giving birth to the first dinosaur to see the daylight in more than 100 million years. The egg which was believed to be petrified was preserved in a small storage room situated right next to the boiler room. When the system started overheating a few weeks ago, it seems to have surprisingly initiated the incubation process, leading the egg to hatch. «This…

Scientist fired from university after discovering shocking dinosaur bones believed to be only 4,000 years old

A recent archaeological discovery that throws a wrench into the conventional theory of evolution has reportedly cost a California professor his job. Mark Armitage, a former scientist at California State University, Northridge (CSUN), was reportedly fired after claiming to have unearthed a dinosaur fossil that still contains soft, flexible tissue, suggesting that it can’t be millions of years old. A 30-year veteran in his field, Armitage has published many studies over the years in peer-reviewed journals. One of his most recent was published last July, pertaining to a discovery he…

This Is The Most Realistic Reconstruction Of A Dinosaur Ever Made

A Cretaceous dinosaur fossil so well preserved we can determine its skin coloring has led to the most realistic reconstruction yet of one of these extinct beasts. It has also given us insight into the environment in which this particular species lived. When he was a graduate student, Dr Jakob Vinther, now of the University of Bristol, realized that structures on the skins of exceptionally preserved fossils once carried melanin pigments. Earlier this year this idea was used to reconstruct the colors of a 10-million-year-old snake. Vinther is even more ambitious,…
