Allosaurus against stegosaur, video


This video is about a confrontation between the carnivorous dinosaur allosaurus and a stegosaurus (somewhat like in this video, but graphically different).

Dacentrurus and other stegosaurs: here.

Video on dinosaur extinction, and text on dinosaurs in Germany: here.

For decades, popular articles and books claimed that the armor-plated Stegosaurus and the biggest of the sauropod dinosaurs had second brains in their rumps. These dinosaurs, it was said, could reason “a posteriori” thanks to the extra mass of tissue. It was a cute idea, but a totally wrong hypothesis that actually underscores a different dinosaur mystery: here.

  2. ‘Dinosaur hunter’ from Va. makes big find

    Associated Press – July 31, 2007 5:45 PM ET

    A Spotsylvania County dinosaur hunter has made a big find in the Wyoming desert.

    Bob Simon spends time every summer in Wyoming looking for fossils that are around 145 million years old.

    Simon has even left his job as a petroleum geologist and founded Dinosaur Safaris.

    From Memorial Day through Labor Day, the 51-year-old and a core group of volunteers search a tiny section of the Morrison Formation. The layer of sedimentary rock that stretches through 1.5 million acres of the American West.

    His company leased digging rights on Red Canyon Ranch, and he has worked the site each summer since 1999.

    And Simon and the volunteers have made some big finds. They’ve found a 70% complete skeleton of a camptosaurus and have started excavating the remains of a diplodocus.

    Simon also has found some teeth of a torvosaurus, a rare predator of the Jurassic period.
