There were canines Pegomastax 2.5 cm resembling vampire fangs. Posterior teeth were suitable for chewing vegetation.

According to scientists, giant reptiles lay eggs about 60 million years ago. Have made wonderful discovery, the expedition “Chechnya – tourism center.” A group of scientists and public figures set out in the Sharoi area to explore two mountain waterfall, which were not previously studied by geographers. We have studied the terrain, and suddenly someone has paid attention to the balls flat shape, which lay on the rocks around – told Life News Head of the Laboratory, “Landscape Research” CSU Said-Emin Dzhabrailov. – Judging by the form, we immediately assumed that it can be fossilized eggs.

Paleontologists have found a strange hunchback dinosaur

strange, hunchback ,dinosaurSpanish paleontologists have discovered the remains of a new teropodnogo dinosaur of the Cretaceous period, whose age is estimated at 125 million years.
Animal received the scientific name Concavenator corcovatus. His almost complete skeleton was in the limestone; discovery was made back in 2003 in central Spain. In the early Cretaceous period, this area was probably a swampy area and resembled the Everglades in southern Florida.
The total length of the body C. corcovatus – about six meters. In the study of his remains, scientists noted an increase in upper arch of the eleventh and twelfth vertebrae, but to determine what functions were performed by forming a “hump”, they still can not: it is necessary to find other skeletons with similar changes in the vertebrae. “It is safe to say only that it is very unusual,” – says paleontologist at Cambridge University, Roger Benson (Roger Benson).

Dinosaur eggs are warmed with boiling water

Dinosaur, eggsSome species of dinosaurs laid eggs in the immediate vicinity of the geothermal sources, so that the steam rising from them warmed masonry.

The article, in which experts presented data findings, published in the journal Nature Communications.

The authors have worked in Argentina, in the province of La Rioja (La Rioja). They found 80 clutches of eggs at a distance of three meters or less from geothermal sources. The average stack contained from 3 to 12 eggs, but in some cases, their number reached 35 pieces. By outward appearances, scientists have determined that the eggs belonged neozauropodam – a group of reptiles, sister zauropodam (giant dinosaurs running on four legs).

A dinosaur island dwarfism

The researchers proved that the dinosaur was of island dwarfism – that is, reducing the size of species due to habitat on the island.

The article appeared in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and her summary of the results in Discovery News.

In the study, researchers studied the cell structure of fossilized bones Magyarosaurus dacus. These bones were discovered in 1895, but until recently, many experts have assumed that they belonged to the young. The researchers proved that the bone remains found at the time of death M. dacus was already quite “old”.

Discovered bones belong to the dinosaur belonging to a group Sauropoda – four-legged long-necked herbivorous dinosaurs that lived on our planet in the period from the Jurassic to the Cretaceous period, the est105 million years ago. Scientists reported that they were found two skulls at once little-known species Sauropoda.

Paleontologists say that such finds are extremely rare and are a big success for the scientists. Now, thanks to the remains discovered, specialists will be able to draw conclusions about how, in particular, developed teeth Sauropoda, as well as other information about these animals.
