  1. Came accross this news shared by the NHM Maastricht, another fossil bird has been discribed from the same quarry and layer in which the famous wonderchicken "Asteriornis" was found. This being the Romontbos quarry in Eben-Emael in Belgium (near de border with Maastricht in the Netherlands) which dates to the Late Maastrichtian era (66,7 mya) Here are some links to the news articles (both in english as in dutch) as well as as video. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2022/nov/30/ct-scans-toothed-bird-fossil-jaw-mobile-palate-avian-evolution https://www.bbc.com/news/uk

    News on Dromaeosaurs pack hunting

    Just found this, but I’m not sure if it’s fully true considering the Deinonychus pack they discovered along with the Tenontosaurus. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/05/200506123751.htm

    “ It’s easy to think that as a result of the extinction of the dodo, we are now sadder and wiser, but there’s a lot of evidence to suggest that we are merely sadder and better informed. Douglas Adams http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-43825141

    Dinosaurs too successful

  18. Story of an intrepid fossil hunter in New Zealand who hopes he has found a dinosaur. https://i.stuff.co.nz/oddstuff/100187691/game-of-bones-has-glen-dug-up-a-dinosaur-or-is-it-a-whale-of-a-tale Says the fossil will be 6 foot long when complete. Looks like Miocene siltstone concretion that is common to the area (Taranaki) so I'm betting it could be a baleen whale skull. Alas for this bloke, not a dinosaur @Boesse what do you think? I recommended he get in touch with Ewan.

    Fossil news on your laptop or phone

    I have just discovered that if you search for 'fossils' on flipboard under 'your passions' (it is an app you can get on your phone, also will open on laptops) it will bring up loads of news on fossils from all over the world. Once I was signed in I deleted off my phone and just used it on my laptop to save data usage. I expect I am probably the last to find out this but I thought I would mention it anyway.

    California now has a state dinosaur

    http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-me-ln-california-state-dinosaur-20170923-story.html California decided that it needed another state fossil and chose Augustynolophus morrisi to be it, mostly because it was only found in California for now. Its a pretty nice hadrosaur, but what intrigues me is that they are only found in the Moreno Formation, which is usually a Cretaceous ocean zone famous for their mosasaurs. Decided to fish this one out after one of my classmates did a current event report on it

    A not so lazy sloth...

    Hi all, Came across this, and thought it might interest a few of you: http://interestingengineering.com/these-impressive-tunnels-were-dug-by-ancient-giant-sloths/ Those ground sloths are really my favorite, they're gigantic but still have a cute/gentle look. And they're architectural masters too. Max
  22. Here is some news from kumamoto where a theropod tooth as been found and described recently.

    Teleocrater Public Unveiling

    Our family tries to keep abreast of events happening at our local college, Virginia Tech. We had previously helped paleontologists with a "Citizen Science" night that involved unpacking a full summer's worth of finds. This month, the paleontologists held a public unveiling of their new find, Teleocrater rhadinus. Above is a picture of my son, left, helping to hold up the drawing of the full-sized creature. I've included the public abstract, which described it as "the earliest bird-line archosaur."
  25. Fossils of TWO 180 million-year-old dinosaurs unearthed beneath road in China http://www.geologyin.com/2016/10/fossils-of-two-180-million-year-old.html I looked at the pictures included in the article and the arrangement of the bones looks fake to me. The articulation is too perfect and straight, at least for the back half. The rib area looks more authentic to me. I am likely wrong, and I have not seen many dinosaur fossils in situ, but this just looks plain weird!
