Interesting bit of Jurassic Park IV news today, Dan's JP3 Page said that John Sayles, in an interview with the New York Observer, has claimed the Nick Harris, Gun tooting Dino-Human script was in fact true. A hacker intercepted the e-mail that was directed to Steven Speilberg and gave it to Aint-It-Cool News and had it reviewed. As you know, the script was unpopular amongst the Jurassic Park fan community and it was later found out that Jurassic Park IV's script was under going some development issues. Another interesting point is that Sayles did confirm JPIV was on hold as well. (Thanks to forum member JParkRockz for the heads up!)

Paleontologist Jack Horner, he consulted for the Jurassic Park films, has come under fire lately because it is believed he or Universal Studios held back a discovery of a rather large T.rex specimen in order to help promote the launch of Jurassic Park 3 in movie theaters. Here's a little snippet from the article
Horner, who is one of the nation's leading fossil hunters and works at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, said that the skeleton was discovered in June 2000 and excavated the following year. The announcement was not made until just before the 2001 release of "Jurassic Park III." He said that when he told Universal Pictures about the discovery, "when they chose to announce it, it was up to them. I didn't care."But he disputed a part of the NPR report that said he "fudged" the discovery date so that news of find would come out closer to the movie. "What was fudged? Nothing," Horner told The Associated Press. "The discovery dates are put in our notes. When somebody finds something, you write it down; you can't alter it. There wouldn't be any reason to alter it."
So Dr. Horner has been in some hot water apparently, you can read the article here from Yahoo News.

Our forums will be down because Proboards will be upgrading within the next 24 hours to version 4. Unfortunately that means the message board will be unavailable until then.

Yahoo! News posted about an excellent discovery in the realm of Paleontology yesterday. It was the discovery of the missing link between carnivorous and herbivorous dinosaurs. Falcarius utahensis is an earlier known member of the Therizinosaurs, sloth like members of the Saurichian family. Falcarius was 12 feet in length, 3 feet high, and it's claws were 5 inches.
All plant-eating dinosaurs were ultimately descended from a meat-eater, and switchovers to plant-eating occurred several times. The newly discovered species, which lived 125 million years ago, could help scientists understand details of how the changeovers took place.
I also included an image for everyone to see the new dinosaur

Pachycephalosaurs seem to be in the news spotlight recently, JPJunkie, a forum member pointed this article out from National Geographic
National Geographic - March 2005

Remember the scene in Jurassic Park: The Lost World of a dome-headed pachycephalosaur wildly head butting a Jeep? Or maybe you recall dinosaur illustrations-like the one above from our January 1993 Issue-of pachcephalosaurs ramming each other with their nine-inch-thick noggins. Now Paleontogists Mark Goodwin and Jack Horner are rethinking the head-butting concept. After compairing fossil pachycephalosaur skulls from three dinosaur-bone beds in Montana, the two paleontologists found that only young pachycephalosaur skulls have the porous, almost spongy bones that scientists think could havecushioned the impact of head butting; in adults the bones had filled in and become denser, losing their cushioning effect. Goodwin and Horner now believe the spongy bone was a developmental feature that helped form the skull, not a kind of built-in helmet for head-butting.
They also found no evidence of healed scars from skull crashing. "Bone is a dynamic tiddue and responds to stress," cays Goodwin. "If the animals were impacted in any way, the bone would show it." Pachycephalosaurs were "very gracile, lightly built," says Horner. Crashing their rounded skulls into one another would probably cause injury., twisting the head and hammering the neck.
So why the big head? It may have helpedin species recognition or in attracting a mate, the paleontologists speculate. In any case, Goodwin is convinced "the pachycephalosaur dome wasn't a very good crash helmet."
Be sure to swing by and pick that issue up from your local retailer today! Also, if you haven't joined up on our forums yet you should definently consider it as it's the best way to meet other Jurassic Park Fans just like yourself!

Some news round up's today. According to Dan's JP3 Page Sam Neill is saying there is a high chance there will not be a Jurassic Park IV made.
According to an email newsletter, while attending the Logie Awards last night, a "well-oiled" Neill "ruled out a possibility of a Jurassic Park 4" in-between making political comments and presenting an award. Is Sam speaking the truth, or just trying to get into the papers?
Check out the full thing at Dan's site.

There is exciting news of a new find in paleontology today that shows off a new type of Pachycephalosaur previously unknown to science before.
Discovery of the flat-headed member of the pachycephalosaur family changes the view of dinosaur history during the final days of the Cretaceous Period 66 million years ago, showing that family trees were still evolving even as the entire dinosaur world was about to go extinct, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis said in announcing the find.
