While birds, crocodilians and many dinosaurs laid hard-shelled eggs, the Antarctic egg had a soft, parchment-like shell.
Asteroid that killed dinosaurs hit Earth at 60 degrees, maximising the amount of climate-changing gases that entered the atmosphere
It released sulphur in the air and started a “nuclear winter” that not only wiped out dinosaurs but caused 75 percent of life on Earth to go extinct.
Asteroid, climate change is not responsible for the mass extinction that took place 215 million years ago
This mass extinction is termed as the Adamanian-Revueltian turnover, which saw a “decline in diversity among crocodylian-line archosaurs and the extinction of several taxa”.
During this period, there were mass extinctions, especially in oceans, caused by gases from the lava that flowed onto land.
Around 66 million years ago, a mass die-off called Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, put an end to the reign of dinosaurs.
Mammals had lived in the large shadow of the dinosaurs, never getting bigger than a small dog until the mass extinction.
Researchers based their theory by using thermal imaging to examine alligators in a Florida zoo.
The duck-billed dinosaur, that weighed almost as much as an Asian elephant, is believed to be a nine-year-old adult dinosaur.
The fossilized bird was found in a lump of amber and lived 99 million years ago in mangroves.
The Vespersaurus lived 90 million years ago and is in the same family as the Velociraptor.
The discovery is likely to fuel the debate over how birds & dinosaurs developed the ability to flap their wings.
The discovery gives researchers a peek into tyrannosaurs evolution before they took over the planet.
Humans are prove to be ultimate generalists owing more to technology than evolution.
As kids, we were taught that asteroids killed dinosaurs, but there's more to the story, says study.
We found microscopic shark teeth right beside bones of the largest predators of all time: Researcher.
An old fossil skeleton and preserved ancient footprints were used to create a moving robot model.
Among them are major fossil finds, a reptile ancestor & a controversy that could rewrite man's history.
Short, hair-like feathers covered their bodies but lacked the central shaft of avian flight feathers.
These mammal-like reptiles called dicynodonts did not die out as long ago as previously thought.
Sauropod species were the biggest creatures ever to walk the planet, reaching up to 33 to 34 meters.
