Dinosaurs – “Missing Link” Discovered
Covering some paleontology news which I haven’t yet done on this site, a new type of dinosaur has been discovered in Utah. Paleontologists from the Utah Geological Survey and the Utah Museum of Natural History at the University of Utah, in work summarized for the Thursday edition of the journal Nature, said, “Falcarius utahensis” provides clues about how meat-eaters related to Velociraptor evolved into vegetarians. With nearly 1,700 bones excavated during the past three years, scientists have about 90 percent of Falcarius’ bones and believe the skeletal remains show several signs of major evolutionary transition.
