Got a new round of site updates here on Jurassic Park Legacy. So far we have updated our own little Jurassic Park Wiki also known as the Jurassic Park Encyclopedia with new classifications in the Movie Database on Pachycephalosaurus and Parasaurolophus. The General Notes section is also a prime new revision to the data we have found on the latest paleontological finds.

Miscellaneous updates are grammatical corrections, archiving of news, and a bunch of other exciting stuff in this area. The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park Chaos Effect toy sections got some updates about some unreleased toys. Did we mention a new section? The Jurassic Park Explorer DVD game launched approximately two years ago finally has its own section on the site under the Games menu.

Over the week JPToys has issued some exciting news to a new Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2009 toy line. You folks can expect it out this August, be sure to check out the Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs toy section and Jurassic Park Toys for further information about this Toys 'R' Us exclusive toy line!

If you folks will remember our anonymous tip the other day about a brand new Jurassic Park special coming to life on The Weather Channel this August. It will be playing August 9th at 8:30pm ET/PT. Here is what you can expect from the special:
Fantasy and reality collide as the cast and crew of the film "Jurassic Park" face the most powerful hurricane to hit the Hawaiian islands in over a century. Hurricane Iniki's piercing rains and 145 mile per hour winds take Steven Spielberg and company by surprise, destroying sets and trapping the filmmakers on the island of Kauai. Through never before seen footage, and brand new interviews with the cast and crew of "Jurassic Park," "Storm Stories" tells the amazing tale of survival and the ingenuity of a film crew trapped in a disaster.

Folks this sounds exciting! Also included is an exclusive clip sent to us for your viewing pleasure! (Be sure to double-click the QuickTime Clip below to start and click the clip to stop)

Don't forget to check out Storm Stories: Jurassic Park this August 9th on The Weather Channel at 8:30 ET/PT. With re-airs on August 10th at 2:30am & 2:30pm and August 16th at 2:00pm, please note that dates are subject to change and all times are Eastern Daylight Savings. Once again we'd like to thank our source for this information and we look forward to seeing the show!

World's largest dinosaur skeleton in Japan

abc7news reports world's largest dino skeleton replica assembled.

Mamenchisaurus holds another record- the world's largest dinosaur skeleton. What was thought to be an almost 100 foot-long Mamenchisaurus (complete with 50 foot-long neck) individual is actually a gigantic 115 foot beast.

The individual is longer than "Seismosaurus" (actually an old Diplodocus) and even Supersaurus, the longest dinosaur known until now. Can you imagine how long the neck of that giant is?

The title is slightly misleading; the largest mounted dinosaur skeleton is from an Argentinosaurus at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History, at 123 feet. However, this is far bigger than the real animal. Thus, Mamenchisaurus is currently the longest dinosaur skeleton ever mounted without the use of over-sized estimations.

Three new dinosaurs discovered

Palaeontologists working on the Winton Formation in Queensland, Australia have recently unveiled their latest discovery; three previously unknown dinosaur species whose fossils date back almost 100 million years to the mid-Cretaceous era.

Australovenator wintonensis is a carnivore, described by palaeontologist Scott Hucknell as "the cheetah of his time", features three large claws on each hand and was found in a 98 million year old stagnant pond along with what is presumed to be his prey, the stocky sauropod Diamantinasaurus matildae.

Also discovered was the titanosaur Witonotitan wattsi, another sauropod.

For the full news report see the BBC News article, or the research article in the Public Library of Science One.
