First Dinosaur Embryo Skin Discovered -- Unhatched Embryos Are First Ever Found Of Giant-Plant Eating Dinosaurs
A team of researchers announced in the journal Nature the discovery in Argentina of a dinosaur nesting ground strewn with thousands of eggs, dozens of which still have unhatched dinosaur embryos inside.

Discovery Of New Large, Predatory Dinosaur Reported In Science
Curved claws like giant meathooks and a long, narrow, crocodile-like skull were among the fossil remains of a new genus and species of dinosaur recently excavated in Africa.

Dinosaur Tooth Enamel: A Key To Investigating Ancient Climate On Land
By analyzing the enamel of dinosaur teeth using a new technique developed at the Carnegie Institution's Geophysical Laboratory, researchers at Carnegie and Macalester College have determined that temperatures in North America during the Late Cretaceous (~75 million years ago) were not dramatically different than they are today. However, Madagascar was warmer and more arid. (1998-10-28)

New Studies Shed Light On Facial Features Of Popular Dinosaurs
Studies by an Ohio University paleontologist suggest that contrary to popular belief, Tyrannosaurus rex probably didn't have lips and Triceratops most likely didn't have cheeks. The assertion could have implications for scientists who study these extinct animals and the toy manufacturers, movie set designers and artists whose recreations of dinosaurs now seem inaccurate. (1998-10-01)

New Evidence From Dinosaur Footsteps Show Massive Herds Once Roamed Northern Alaska
A University of Alaska expedition has discovered a significant variety of single dinosaur footprints and sets of prints, or trackways, on Alaska's North Slope. The discovery provides the first direct evidence that dinosaurs were numerous and diverse in the Arctic 90-110 million years ago. (1998-09-14)

International Research Team Announces Discovery Of Two Species Of Feathered Dinosaurs
A team of scientists announces this week in Nature the discovery in northeastern China of two 120-million-year-old dinosaur species, both of which show unequivocal evidence of true feathers. Both remarkable new creatures provide further support for the theory that birds evolved from small, meat- eating, ground-dwelling dinosaurs and give new insights into the origin of birds. (1998-06-24)

Carnegie Mellon Researchers Develop Nation's First Robotic Tour Guide For The Dinosaur Hall At Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum Of Natural History
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute have created an autonomous mobile robot to be a tour guide in the world-famous Dinosaur Hall at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Natural History. It's the first robot to be deployed on the floor of a U.S. Museum to interact with visitors as a permanent part of an exhibit. It can detect the presence of people and lead them on a 15 minute tour using a multimedia format. (1998-05-26)

Scientists Unearth Remains Of A Predatory Dinosaur In Madagascar

Remarkable Skull Of Predatory Dinosaur Unearthed On Madagascar
Several specimens of a large predatory dinosaur -- including a nearly complete, exquisitely preserved skull -- were recently recovered on the island of Madagascar. The discovery is announced in this week's issue of the journal Science by a team of researchers funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by paleontologist/anatomist Scott Sampson of the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine of the New York Institute of Technology.
