*Cue Jurassic Park theme song* Preserved in amber, and found in Myanmar, this long-snouted weevil dating from the Cretaceous period is about 100 million years old. Up until now, researchers had no idea what these now-extinct weevils would have looked like. The world looked pretty different back then – conifers (cone-bearing plants) and ferns were abundant – and angiosperms (flowering plants, including grasses) were just beginning to diversify, before eventually conquering the world. The flowers of the earliest angiosperms were perfect places for these weevils to lay their eggs as they contained seeds – a ready, hidden and protected source of food for growing weevil larvae. Psst. In case you’re wondering – this weevil would have fed on conifers rather than dinosaurs, so it doesn’t look as though we’ll be launching a ripper of a theme park anytime soon. #csiro #research #weevil #animals #fossils #angiosperms #cretaceous #amber

Tylosaurus 🌊 a genus of mosasaur, the largest family of marine reptiles that dominated the seas during the late Cretaceous, 86.5-75 million years ago. While not a dinosaur, Tylosaurus was a huge apex predator of deep and shallows, larger than some of biggest land dwelling carnivores. The species Tylosaurus Proriger could reach lengths of up to 14 meters long, the same as an American school bus. After the extinction of the previous dominant marine reptiles, the pliosaurs, other smaller marine reptiles known as Aigialosaurs thrived and filled in the predatory gap, thus gradually growing and evolving into the dominating mosasaurs. Tylosaurus, as well as other members of it's family also share the same ancestor of today's Monitor lizards, making it a distant relative of mosasaurs. Palaeontologists believe Tylosaurs had a varied and adaptive diet. The body was elongated and streamlined, and it's skull was flexible with a double hinged jaw, similar to snakes, which allowed it to open wide when swallowing prey whole. Fossilised stomach contents show evidence that it fed on many types of fish, sharks, plesiosaurs, ammonites, early diving sea birds and even other mosasaurs... It was so well adapted for it's habitat that they could even give birth to live young. While they likely preferred to hunt in shallow seas like most mosasaurs, some Tylosaurus remains have been found from dig sites that record them at a deeper sea level, suggesting they were capable of hunting at depths, similar to today's Sperm Whales. Tylosaurus was a super successful and adaptable predator, evolved perfectly for it's environment, you're not gonna get any closer to a real life sea monster, on earth that is...

Rapetosaurus krausei | Titanosaurid sauropod (late Cretaceous period) © Mark Hallett Discovered on the island of Madagascar, Rapetosaurus' discovery was one of the rare times when a sauropod fossil was found with an intact skull. It was named after a giant deity from Malagasy folklore (Rapeto) and for a titanosaur, it would have been a modest length of about 15 metres, which is about half the length of peers like Argentinosaurus and Paralititan. #dinosaur #ink #illustration #sketch #cretaceous #pen #drawing #rapetosaurus #sauropod #titanosaur #terriblelizard #rapeto #giant #madagascar #prehistoric #paleoart #redrawn #markhallett #herbivore #reptile #lizard #extinct #dinosaurart #extinctanimals

Tyrannotitan (Tyrant Titan) was a therapod that lived in Argentina during the Early Cretaceous 118 million years ago. Despite its name, this animal did not belong to the tyrannosaur family, but was instead an early carcharodontosaur. Little is known about this animal, although it is estimated to be around 40 feet long and weighing around 5 tonnes. It would have been an efficient hunter, capable of running up to around 20 miles an hour. Its large jaws were full of straight teeth, which were well developed for cutting and tearing flesh.

Did a super quick painting of an Oviraptor, just to try and learn how to do 'fluff'. So, cool facts about this guy. For starters, its name means something along the lines of "egg stealer", after it was first found with a clutch of eggs, assumed to be of another dinosaur. Turns out though those were its own young and it was guarding them, not eating them. It isn't a true raptor, although likely still feathered, it was a distant cousin of velociraptors and the likes. Also, it shared the same space as velociraptor, Cretaceous Mongolia, to be precise. Oh, and it had a beak, but it also had spikes on the roof of it's mouth, because, you know, nature is scary. #oviraptor #theropod #cretaceous #dinosaur #feathers #art #painting #acrylic #prehistoric #mongolia

Centrosaurus is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaurs from the late Cretaceous of Canada. Their remains have been found in the Dinosaur Park Formation, dating from 76.5 to 75.5 million years ago. . The massive bodies of Centrosaurus were borne by stocky limbs, although at up to 6 m (19,7ft) they were not particularly large dinosaurs. Like other centrosaurines, Centrosaurus bore single large horns over their noses. These horns curved forwards or backwards depending on the specimen. Skull ornamentation was reduced as animals aged. . Centrosaurus is distinguished by having two large hornlets which hook forwards over the frill. A pair of small upwards directed horns is also found over the eyes. The frills of Centrosaurus were moderately long, with fairly large fenestrae and small hornlets along the outer edges. . The genus Centrosaurus gives its name to the Centrosaurinae subfamily. Its closest relatives appear to be Styracosaurus and Monoclonius. It so closely resembles the latter of these that some paleontologists have considered them to represent the same animal. Other members of the Centrosaurinae clade include Pachyrhinosaurus, Avaceratops, Einiosaurus, Albertaceratops, and Achelousaurus. . .

This handsome looking dinosaur species @natural_history_museum was formally known as Iguanodon until it was renamed Mantellisaurus in 2007 to honor the great paleontologist Gideon Mantell. . . . . #dinosaur #dino #namechange #naturalhistorymuseum #museum #fossil #fossils #london #holotype #isleofwight #skeleton #exhibit #jurassic #cretaceous #iguanodon #science #geology

Mantellisaurus atherfieldensis (35/365) Formerly known as Iguanodon atherfieldensis or also Dollodon bampingi, this name shiftering iguanodontian lived in the Early Cretaceous of Europe. Mantellisaurus was smaller and less robust than Iguanodon benissartensis, with proportionally shorter and thinner forelimbs and a less triangle shaped skull. The genus name honours Gideon Mantell and his wife Mary Ann Mantell, both discoverers of the first Iguanodon. 🦎🇬🇧🏛 Mantellisaurus atherfieldensis (35/365) Anteriorment anomenat Iguanodon atherfieldensis o també Dollodon bampingi, aquest iguanodontià de nom cambiant va viure al Cretaci Inferior a Europa.

Here is a very curious fossil from the brittle star assemblage (seen on the reverse side of the brittle star from the previous post). We have some good ideas what this might be but, that said, suggestions are very welcome! Note that the axial stem of the fossil appears to be comprised of spindle shaped 'sclerites'. Specimen is about 20mm long. Late Cretaceous Grey Chalk of Southern England, around 96 million years old.

Tyrannosaurus rex and triceratops at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. There is fossil evidence that T. Rex ate triceratops meat but whether it was scavenged or hunted isn’t yet known. It makes a good scene though. #onthemenu #dinosaurs #trex #triceratops #naturalhistorymuseum #cretaceous #cretaceousdinosaurs #cleveland #naturalhistory #paleontology #palaeontology #fossilreconstruction #scary #skeleton

70ish million years ago, in a galaxy far far away...(OK , it was this galaxy) when earth bubbled with fiery volcanos the weird alien sea life of the Cretaceous period got even weirder and all decided heaven was in the form of a collective sea bed ball (don't judge them, it was a different time) as the ocean floors dried up and become exposed to the sun, the ghosts of swimmy dinosaur filled mud balls dried up, cracked (usually in seven places...get it..sept..oh nevermind) and here we are 70 million years later, putting them on our fireplace to dress up our homes.

@collegeofcharleston student Nathan McCuen (left) is volunteering at CCNHM this semester, helping identify fossils. Right now he is going through one of the largest (if not the largest) collection of mosasaur teeth from South Carolina. (a couple of examples are shown on the right). Mosasaurs are giant marine lizards most closely related to extant monitor lizards (e.g. Komodo Dragons, perenties, goannas) that evolved in the Cretaceous period and went extinct 65 million years ago along with the dinosaurs. Preliminarily, we seem to have teeth of Prognathodon, Tylosaurus, and potentially Mosasaurus and at least one other unidentified mosasaur - doubling the number of mosasaur species known from South Carolina!

Carnotaurus sastrei, agile predatore del Cretaceo superiore (circa 70 milioni di anni fa), è uno dei dinosauri più peculiari e affascinanti. La sua caratteristica più famosa è senza dubbio il paio di corna posto sopra le orbite dell'animale, dalla funzione sconosciuta; la maggior parte dei ricercatori è d'accordo su un utilizzo nei combattimenti intraspecifici, ma qualcuno propone le corna come arma per la caccia (teoria che renderebbe il Carnotaurus l'unico predatore esistente ad utilizzare questa tecnica). Inoltre doveva essere un animale estremamente veloce (forse il più veloce tra i grossi predatori) e un predatore apicale nell'Argentina tardo cretacica. Poteva raggiungere gli 8 metri di lunghezza, 3 di altezza e sfiorare le 2 tonnellate di peso. #mydraw #mwdrawing #sketch #sketchbook #dinosaur #dinosaurs #carnotaurus #paleontology #paleoart #cretaceous #argentina
