Canadian paleontologist Wendy Sloboda is a legend in her field. She's a self-taught dinosaur-hunter with a sixth sense for finding important fossils.
A few million years after the dinosuars went extinct a large, beefy, penguin rose to prominence in New Zealand. It wouldn't have been the kind of bird people could catch or kill — it could easily overpower a man.
This mashup of a creature was indisputably a carnivore with croc-like teeth and razor-sharp claws. Paleontologists have said it roamed the earth some 75 million years ago in present-day Mongolia.
A fossil dug up and smuggled in the early 1990s by Chinese farmers has finally revealed its secrets. A fossilized embryo shows what was inside the giant dinosaur eggs that were sold all over the wolrd.
Microfossils found in Canada may be the oldest-known evidence of life on Earth, scientists have announced. The discovery supports theories about how life began, though some say the evidence may not be strong enough.
