Tell-tale toes point to oldest-known fossil bird tracks from Australia
Two fossilized footprints found at Dinosaur Cove in Victoria, Australia, were likely made by birds during the Early Cretaceous, making them the oldest known bird tracks in Australia. View News Article (2013-10-28)

Oldest complex organic molecules found in ancient fossils
Ohio State University geologists have isolated complex organic molecules from 350-million-year-old fossil sea creatures - the oldest such molecules yet found. View News Article (2006-10-26)

Researchers use CT and 3-D printers to recreate dinosaur fossils
Data from computed tomography (CT) scans can be used with three-dimensional (3-D) printers to make accurate copies of fossilized bones, according to new research published online in the journal Radiology. View News Article (2013-11-20)

Giant Kraken Lair Discovered
Long before whales, the oceans of Earth were roamed by a very different kind of air-breathing leviathan. Snaggle-toothed ichthyosaurs larger than school buses swam at the top of the Triassic Period ocean food chain, or so it seemed before Mount Holyoke College paleontologist Mark McMenamin took a look at some of their remains in Nevada. View News Article (2011-10-11)

Rodents were diverse and abundant in prehistoric Africa when our human ancestors evolved
Rodents get a bad rap as vermin and pests because they seem to thrive everywhere. They have been one of the most common mammals in Africa for the past 50 million years. View News Article (2010-12-21)

Little teeth suggest big jump in primate timeline
Tiny fossilized teeth excavated from an Indian open-pit coal mine could be the oldest Asian remains ever found of anthropoids, the primate lineage of today's monkeys, apes and humans, say researchers from Duke University and the Indian Institute of Technology. View News Article (2008-08-05)

Researchers work across fields to uncover information about hadrosaur teeth
An unusual collaboration between researchers in two disparate fields resulted in a new discovery about the teeth of 65-million-year-old dinosaurs. View News Article (2012-10-12)

Odd mosaic of dental features reveals undocumented primate
It's in the teeth. An odd mosaic of dental features recently unearthed in northern Egypt reveals a previously undocumented, highly-specialized primate called Nosmips aenigmaticus that lived in Africa nearly 37 million years ago. View News Article (2010-05-11)

Feeding limbs and nervous system of one of Earth's earliest animals discovered
An extraordinary find allowing scientists to see through the head of the 'fuxianhuiid' arthropod has revealed one of the earliest evolutionary examples of limbs used for feeding, along with the oldest nervous system to stretch beyond the head in fossil record.  View News Article (2013-02-28)

Demoting a dinosaur
Azendohsaurus just shed its dinosaur affiliation. A careful new analysis of A. madagaskarensis-this time based on the entire skull rather than on just teeth and jaws-aligns this 230-million-year-old animal with a different and very early branch on the reptile evolutionary tree. View News Article (2010-05-19)
