A 68 million-year-old DNA sample retrieved from soft tissue cells found in a recently excavated pregnant Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil has led researchers at North Carolina State University to produce the first fully living dinosaur embryo in millions of years.
Every so often a discovery is made that attempts to shake up pre-conceived notions of how the dinosaurs actually lived or how they came to be. On June 22, 2000, in Oregon, scientists announced the discovery of the oldest known animal to have feathers. Though no records indicate how the age of the animal was determined, the
A new dinosaur species was uncovered from within the largest fossil collection at Wits University's Evolutionary Studies Institute. The dinosaur had been hiding for over 80 years in the fossil collection until a PhD student and a professor happened upon the bones.
I decided to, instead of reviving it, recreate it. So I took some DNA and a few eggs from different animals. Then I put a little DNA in each one and waited for them to hatch. The first to hatch was the chicken egg. It produced a weird looking feathered T-rex. I put it out of its misery. Many more hatched, but none looked correct. The final egg was a alligator egg and when it hatched, it produced the perfect little T-rex. Then I asked myself, why stop at the T-rex. So I put it in its habitat, gave it a turkey to chase, and got to work.
The elongated arm bones that support the wing evolved in the first coelurosaur, which probably looked like ornitholestes. As far as we know feathers are unique to birds, but this doesn’t mean that birds are not dinosaurs. Because birds belong to the group called dinosaurs, it follows that birds are feathered dinosaurs. The closest known evolutionary relatives of birds are some of the small carnivorous dinosaurs, such as velociraptor, ornitholestes, and deinonychus. The difference between a Tyrannosaurus Rex and Apatosaurus is that almost everything about Tyrannosaurus Rex indicates enormous power of one of the largest theropod dinosaurs that ever existed. They have a 4-foot-long jaw, 6-inch-long teeth and massive thighbones. It is the largest and most fearsome carnivore of all time. The fossil was originally arranged so that the dinosaur stood
I think that we shouldn’t create a chickenosaurus because it can be somewhat dangerous to other people or living organisms due to it transforming into a dino-like creature it will also receive having a dino’s personality that is wild and dangerous. The chickenosaurus can be too aggressive because it had been modified into more of a instinctive animal that tries to live or survive from long ago. It also can be trained for the worse, it can be used for destruction due to people wanting to own something like a place, People like corrupted people can re-create a chicken for their own personal use like for inappropriate things or bad things. If it is trained nicely it can also still be turned too the worse if the chickenosaurus doesn’t deserve or
After being given the task of creating an origami Tyrannous Rex with countless amounts of steps missing I can empathy’s with the chief geneticist in Jurassic Park frustration when trying to fill in the blank spaces. When I first read the Fourth Iteration and came across how Dr.Wu was trying to fill in the missing DNA I thought the task was going to be a piece of cake. I later learned that if the scientists had filled in the wrong even by the smallest amount the dinosaur can have an unpredictable outcome.
The Titanosaurus is a newly discovered dinosaur well more like found in the year of 2012. The Titanosaurus was found by a ranch owner in Argentina, by the name you could probably figure out that the dinosaur is huge it's 65 feet tall and 131 feet long and weighs about 77 metric tons (170,000 lbs). but that's not all because the ranch owner called a museum to tell them he found some fossils. The American Museum Of Natural History found out that the animals only been underground for little less than a year, it's so recently found that it doesn't have a species name yet. The American Museum Of Natural History also used new technologies were used on this where the bones were actually laser scanned and prototype from the laser again. This went from
The reading states that the researchers deliberately broke open the Tyrannosaurus rex's leg bone and found remains of blood vessels, red blod cells, and collagen matrix and provides three reasons of support. However, the professor states that it's skeptical that T.rex has all of structures and refutes each of the authors' reasons.
First, Crichton noted that duckbilled dinosaurs were herbivores which are supported by a trace fossil found in the coal beds of the western North America that indicated footprints with plant fossils (Martin 2006). Furthermore, duckbilled dinosaurs lived in a vegetated environment that they had to consume enough food relative to their body size. Duckbilled dinosaurs had lengthened their skull and smoothed snout to obtain and process more food. The Dilophosaurus was described as two curved crests that extended from the eyes to the nose. The crest created a V shape on the head with red and black stripes on the crests (Crichton, 1990). Based on fossil evidence, the Dilophosaurus had two crests on the head, but there was no indication of the pigment of the crest. Next, the book stated that the T. rex does not bite the prey, instead, it twisted and tore the
Neither bats nor birds, pterosaurs were considered reptiles. And although scientists have long debated where exactly pterosaurs fit on the reptile’s family tree, it has been proven time and again that they were close cousins to dinosaurs but just evolved on a different family line.
In a study published in Cretaceous Research and conducted in October 2012 by Anthony R. Fiorillo, Thomas L. Adams and Yoshitsugu Kobayashi, evidence of dinosaurs was based on the finding of an unnamed nonmarine sedimentary package of rocks. Found in the Wrangellia Terrane and considered to be Cretaceous age, the rocks are light colored with medium grey shales and indicate a bounty of horsetails, ferns and gymnosperm wood.
