    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 →

    Meet Nanuqsaurus, a miniature cousin of the t-rex that roamed northern Alaska some 70-million years ago. Roaming northern Alaska now? SASQUATCH. While this has been called a dwarf or pygmy in some quarters, it is hardly small with an estimated size of around 5 m in total le... / 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 →
