A previously unknown giant herbivore discovered (video)

A new subspecies of grass lizard, which has been named Garumbatitan morellensis, was discovered in Spain.

This new dinosaur has been named Garumbatitan morellensis and was 10 meters high and 25 meters long.

The herbivore was a four-legged herbivore with a long neck and tail, not unlike a brachiosaurus.

A cliff in Alaska is covered with dozens of dinosaur footprints, a stunning discovery that reveals their diversity and abundance. The footprints belong to different types of dinosaurs, such as crane-like birds, plant-eaters and predators. The footprints challenge the idea that dinosaurs were warm-climate creatures and show how they adapted to the ancient Alaskan environment.

“Parthenogenesis is a well-established trait in some reptiles. Such babies, called parthenotes, make up the majority of some lizard species: New Mexico whiptails and tiny mourning geckos are made up entirely of all-female lineages. In other reptiles, like copperhead snakes and komodo dragons, it happens only occasionally among specific individuals.”

Caudipteryx doodle. Line work, then with colors inspired by pheasants.

Caudipteryx isn't really a bird but it's only slightly larger than a pheasant and lived in a formation that appears to have been forested.

The fossils have color information and the feathers had visible bands. Although the plumage would apprently have been darker than what I drew.

Somebody with three toes stepped into the mud a very very long time ago!! Each toe is about 3-4” long. This is one of set of slate steps marking a pathway to the back deck at the small home my mother-in-laws rents in Turners Falls, MA. #dinosaurs

A piece of dark brownish-gray slate used as part of a path to a back deck. The slate is wet to make the dinosaur footprint impression more visible. The original foot had three forward facing toes with the center one about 10cm and the ones on either side about 8cm. There is a depression at the base that may be some kind of heel.

Wah, another dinosaur discovery in Thailand:

>“It is one of the most complete dinosaur fossils in Southeast Asia.”

>It is the 13th dinosaur fossil found in Thailand and the world’s newest discovered species of dinosaur, Ms Oranuj said.

>The fossil dates from about 150 million years ago, which was in the late Jurassic period. Its pelvis is similar to those of birds, called ornithischian dinosaurs.

>Phu Noi mountain, where the fossil was found, has been dubbed the Jurassic Park of Thailand because more than 5,000 fossilised remains of ancient creatures with backbones have been discovered there. It is the biggest and most bio-diverse site of fossilised vertebrates in Southeast Asia, Ms Oranuj said.

Yes this is a dinosaur pillow case.

Yes I’m in my 40s.

No I won’t be taking any questions.


I love majestic/dramatic poses in paleoart but what I REALLY love are poses that show everyday behavior, even if those poses are less "dignified." Like this painting of lekking, a ground-scraping mating display (plus bonus background sexytime!), in theropod dinosaurs. Art is by Xing Lida, based on preserved marks found in Cretaceous sites in Colorado.

I wrote about it for Live Science:
