    As many are likely aware, birds are dinosaurs. I eat dinosaur almost every day for lunch. Why? Why did only the avian dinosaurs survive the mass extinction?

    Dinosaurs of the northern regions

    Recent excavations and research indicate that several species of dinosaurs roamed further north than previously suspected: some even came close to the Arctic regions.

    Did dinosaurs of the Cretaceous suffer from gigantism?

    By the Cretaceous period, some dinosaurs had grown to truly huge proportions. I wonder what might have caused this phenomenon. Perhaps a physical imbalance called gigantism, provoked by cosmic disturbances or environmental disorders, such as contamination of the atmosphere, soil or bodies of...

    Paleocene Non-Avian Dinosaurs. Did They Actually survive?

    Hey guys I wanted to get this off my back, shoulders and chest. I was reading an article about Non-Avian Dinosaurs that survived the K-Pg extinction boundary 66 million years ago (was 65 million years) and lasted well into the Paleocene epoch, which I found it completely absurd. Sure it'll be...

    Could sapient dinosaurs arise if the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction didn't happen?

    Intelligent Dinosaurs

    I just saw an old video on youtube about Dinosaurs evolving human-like intelligence if that meteor impact had not wiped out the non-avian dinosaurs. The likely candidate was Trodoon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HpBgsnJB4c Thoughts and comments?

    Dinosaurs and Feathers

    Now that it's pretty well established that most dinosaurs had feathers as opposed to scales all over, how do you personally think of it? Do you now prefer dinosaur pictures showing them with feathers or do you always prefer the original more lizard idea even if it is inaccurate? After all...

    What if There are Still Dinosaurs??

    Ok, so the dinosaurs were said to have died because the sun was blotted out by dirt in the sky from a meteor. From there the plants greatly died out, and the large dinosaurs followed. And I guess mammals survived in a hidden caverns and **** somewhere (AKA The Cradle of Humanity, no one ever...

    Dinosaurs and feathers

    They were my passion as a kid. I left the realm of paleozoology for a decade - and came back to find everybody grew feathers. Now they're telling us even basal ceratopsids like Psittacosaurus and possibly even primitive and/or juvenile tyrannosaurids had feathers or feather-like body...
