    A group of guys out for a bachelor party discovered a rare mastadon skull and tusks in the desert of New Mexico, presumably while trying to find a place to bury the stripper. Randall Gann of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science said the partygoers discovered ... / Continue →

    This is a fossilized femur from a new dinosaur species discovered in Argentina that might be the world's largest. Believed to be a new species of Titanosaur (a sauropod, like Brontosaurus), the beast could have reached 40-meters (~130 feet) in length, 20-meters (~65 feet, or 7... / Continue →

    This is a triceratops tractor. It's a tractor with a metal triceratops attached to it that can move its head and open its mouth. It's the opposite of a muscle car. Get it? Because it's only bones! LOLOLKILLMENOW. Still, I'd drive it. Probably on the sidewalk. I would al... / Continue →

    You still like turtles now, Zombie Jonathan?! This is a pair of recently discovered 47-million year old fossilized turtles who were *kids, cover your eyes* boning when they died, which is exactly how I wanna go. No word if my special lady intends to go at the same time, but ... / Continue →

    I lied in the title. It's not actually a t-rex, it's a Tyrannosaurus bataar, a slightly smaller relative of the t-rex (read: Geekologie Writer size *wink*). And now it's up for auction with a minimum bid of $875,000. You and I: we're going to buy it. No, no we're not. We'r... / Continue →

    Paleontologists at Drexel University have developed a means of scanning fossilized dinos, then printing accurate reproductions of their bones to assemble into accurately-moving robotic dinosaurs. No word if they plan on adding skin to them, but I'm not into the bony look. Am ... / Continue →
