News - Dinosaur 'Silky' Key Fossil in Feather Evolution

Belgian palaeontologists have described a new, 165 million year old dinosaur species from Northern China. Serikornis sungei –nickmane ‘Silky’ – is an important fossil in the evolution of feathers in dinosaurs. Silky had feathers on its four limbs, but could not fly. The discovery suggests that ground-dwelling dinosaurs had feathers, possibly to impress mating partners or to warn enemies, before adapting an arboreal lifestyle or flight.

News - Big Crocodiles of Bernissart Get New Name

Three palaeontologists have re-examined and re-described two extremely well-preserved crocodile fossils from the Bernissart mine. They were excavated at the same time as the famous Iguanodons, who were their contemporaries 125 million years ago. The study shows that both crocodiles belonged to another species than previously assumed.
