A new titanosaur from Kenya, footprints on Tyrants Aisle, and teaching evolution through paleoart

Podcast cover

Dinosaur of the day Coloradisaurus, a Triassic sauropodomorph known from a nearly complete skull that was found in Argentina.

Interview with Taissa Rodrigues, from the Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo in Brazil. She presented a poster at SVP about teaching evolution using paleoart. She also led a session on women in paleontology and had a student present a poster on a pterosaur. Follow her on twitter @paleotaissa

Presentations from the first day of SVP:

  • New dating shows Lythronax argestes is older than previously thought, no longer coinciding with a global sea-level drop
  • There are tons of new sauropod fossil fields in southwest Queensland, Australia, near Eromanga
  • Probable ornithopod, ceratopsid, deinonychosaur, and tyrannosaur tracks were found on a 200ft cliff in Alaska
  • In Alberta, Tyrants Aisle has over 120 tracks likely belonging to Edmontosaurus, a troodontid, Tyrannosaurus, and another theropod
  • CT scans of track slabs shows how dinosaur feet moved through soft sediments
  • Laser-stimulated fluorescence (LSF) is being used to gather evidence of the first aerodynamically significant wings
  • A new track site shows a couple sauropods walking together when a larger sauropod skids to avoid squashing a smaller individual.
  • New sauropod finds in Hateg island Transylvania, Romania may be a fourth genus, but isn’t complete enough to get a new name
  • Dinosaurs and crocodiles have hard eggshells that evolved independently
  • A new titanosaur was found in NW Kenya
  • Low melanosome (color pigment producer) diversity may be linked to low metabolism
  • Compacted coarse cancellous bone (CCCB) that is common in burrowing animals was found in the hind limbs of a new Oryctodromeus relative
  • Exceptional fossils don’t necessarily translate to good cellular and molecular preservation
  • New opalized femur fragments from an ornithopod in lightening ridge show that young were born in the area
  • Melanosomes are not enough to determine color. Structure, chemistry, and diet also have a big impact
  • Calcium isotopes from Morocco and Niger support Spinosaurus as a fish-eater
  • More neornithischian finds from south of Melbourne may end with one or two synonymized taxa in the near future
  • New research shows ovarian follicles in an enantiornithine
  • A sauropod footprint was found in a new sauropod bone, adding to the idea of trampling sauropods
  • A dinosaur stampede like trackway was found near Quilpie, QLD, Australia
  • Coprolites can preserve some soft tissue features and other information about temperatures and habitats
  • The name Kamuysaurus is meant to mean that it is the god of Japanese dinosaurs based on its incredibly complete skeleton
  • Deep learning can process CT scans and save time on analyzing images
  • Equisetum, or horse tails, were probably the most nutritious food for young and adult sauropods
  • Birds use their necks in a variety of ways, but they tend to have a lot of traits in common

Podcast cover

Sabrina explains the Bone Wars in incredible depth. The Bone Wars refers to the period between the 1870s and 1890s, where two paleontologists, Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope, had a rivalry that eventually ruined them but also made dinosaurs mainstream.

Some of the dinosaurs they named were Allosaurus, Apatosaurus, Brontosaurus, Camarasaurus, Camptosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Coelophysis, Diplodocus, Dryosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and our dinosaur of the day Hesperornis.

Hesperornis is a penguin-like dinosaur with teeth and strange lobed feet.
