Luckily, the chat room is intact. Please come to the Jurassic Park Legacy chat room in the meantime to chill and talk about anything. The news will be updated when the forums are fixed.




Moa DNA found in fossilized egg shells

Giant, extinct birds called Moas used to roam Australia. Like dinosaurs, they laid eggs. Unlike the eggs of their mesozoic grandfathers, DNA has been found in Moa eggs, according to an article posted up on The Daily Mail

Biologist Charlotte Oskam and colleagues at Murdoch University in Perth, Australia, said eggshell is a resilient membrane that is frequently found in fossil deposits around the world.

But their study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences is the first to discover DNA can be extracted from the eggshells.

The researchers used a state-of-the-art laser technique to highlight DNA 'hotspots' under the microscope using fluorescent green dye.


Yes. DNA. The building block for building a living creature. As to whether the DNA will lead to a 'new' generation of Moa birds remains to be seen, but this certainly raises some interesting questions. If we can get DNA from fossilized Moa eggs, why not dinosaurs?

67 Million Year Old Fossil of a Snake Eating Dinosaur Infants
Date: Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - 0:33 AM (Eastern Time)

You read correct folks. A new prehistoric snake species was found eating baby dinosaurs.

The 67 million-year-old fossil is of a snake coiled around dinosaur eggs and a hatchling. This is the first evidence of snakes eating dinosaurs.

Its a stunning, once-in-a-lifetime find, said paleontologist Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago, who was not involved in the study. Weve caught one of the rarest moments in the fossil record, which is prey and predator, together.


The newly discovered species of snake, Sanajeh indicus, measures about 11.5 feet long. The hatchlings, part of a group called titanosaurs, measured about a foot and a half long. Titanosaurs were the largest animal to ever walk on land, with adults that could reach up to 100 feet long.

For those who are attending the Burpee Museum's annual
PaleoFest
, be sure to be there at 3:30 P.M. A talk will be give by Dr. Jason Head from the University of Toronto about this amazing find as well as other Prehistoric snakes!
