    Default Amazing Dinosaur Discovery



    A tiny 3-foot-tall relative of the Tyrannosaurus rex has been discovered and named. In a paper published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, experts explain that the 92-million-year-old fossil is actually a relative of the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex. “Suskityrannus has a much more slender skull and foot than its later and larger cousins, the Tyrannosaurus rex,” Nesbitt explained, in the statement. “The find also links the older and smaller tyrannosauroids from North America and China with the much larger tyrannosaurids that lasted until the final extinction of non-avian dinosaurs.” You can read more about this study here, at:

    Thanks Marshall! In addition to astronomy, I do enjoy paleontology; at least reading about it.

    When I was a kid, I had some of the "How and Why Wonder" books. Still do The first in the series was Dinosaurs; I almost had that whole thing memorized word for word.
    Amazing how, like everything else, knowledge has evolved. I feel so old...

    Thanks again; all the best to you and Sheri!

    Being a child of the 1950s it was the Golden Book series which is still published and updated.

    I remember enjoying it very much and getting righteously annoyed when some classmates told me I was going to come to a very bad end reading such things.
