Gastonia – A very Prickly Dinosaur

Gastonia Heavily Armoured Dinosaur

Fossils of Gastonia (G. burgei) were discovered in the same quarry as that of the predator Utahraptor.  This member of the Polacanthidae group of armoured dinosaurs is known from one almost complete skeleton, including dermal armour and a number of skull fragments.  Measuring around five metres in length, this dinosaur represented a formidable opponent should any meat-eating dinosaur fancy taking it on.  It had several types of armour on its back, tail and flanks.  Pairs of large curved spines ran along the neck and the shoulders.  Wide, broad plates stuck out sideways from the tail and a “saddle of dermal armour” stretched across the hips.  Even the skull was heavily armoured.

Most complete Dinosaur Fossil ever found in the UK ready to make its Debut

By | May 20th, 2008|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Main Page, Palaeontological articles|0 Comments

Scelidosaurus – a uniquely British Dinosaur ready to go on Display

The most complete dinosaur skeleton ever found in the UK is about to go on display at Bristol museum.  The dinosaur, identified as a Scelidosaurus was not found in the dinosaur rich sediments of the Isle of Wight, nor was it found in Oxfordshire, another likely place to find dinosaur fossils.  Instead, this dinosaur was found on a beach in Dorset, an area much more associated with fossils of marine reptiles such as Plesiosaurs and Ichthyosaurs.

The first pieces were found by professional fossil collector David Sole in 2000.  His keen eye spotted something strange on the beach and decided to investigate further.

“There was a lump of rock about two foot by one foot lodged in fine-shingle sand, and I sensed there was something unusual about it,” he remembers.

Closer examination revealed that the chunk of rock was limestone and that it was packed with fossil bone.  Over the next few months and years, further pieces were found in the area, all coming from what had been one individual dinosaur.

The limestone surrounding the fossilised bone was carefully removed using a dilute acid preparation (acetic acid) which slowly dissolved away the surrounding rock to reveal the fossils within.   The dinosaur was identified as a Scelidosaurus, an early bird-hipped (ornithischian) dinosaur, which lived in the early Jurassic approximately 195 million years ago.

This acid soaking technique was pioneered by British scientists working at the Natural History museum – London, in the 1960s and first used to help remove the surrounding matrix from another fossil of Scelidosaurus found entombed in limestone (S. harrisoni).  It was this fossil, another near complete specimen found in the late 1850’s that was described and named by Sir Richard Owen in 1863.  At first the fossil was identified as a kind of crocodile, but further analysis proved that this was indeed a dinosaur but one that had been found in marine sediments.

“It has heavy spines all over its body, with two goat-like horns on the back of the skull forming a kind of ruff with its neck armour. This leads to the inference that this specimen was likely to have been a mature male,” explains Dr Tim Ewin of Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, where this early plant-eating dinosaur will go on display to the public in June.

Up until this particular discovery only a handful of Scelidosaur remains had been discovered, all from an outcrop of rock in the Lyme Regis/Charmouth area of Dorset, so all the remains of this armoured dinosaur seem to have been found in rocks that were laid down at the bottom of a shallow sea.  It is rather odd to find such an animal amongst strata more commonly associated with ammonites and belemnites, especially as scientists have never found any evidence that dinosaurs took to a marine existence.  How did the fossils of these dinosaurs end up in these sediments?

The answer may lie in the ancient early Jurassic landscape that made up what was to become the British Isles.  During this period, the land in the area that was eventually to become the location of the southern part of the UK, consisted of a series of small, low-lying, tropical islands that were surrounded by a warm, shallow sea.  The area resembled the Caribbean of today.  Scelidosaurus could have been endemic to just a few islands, perhaps with each island having its own sub-species (this may help explain some of the different features that have been seen in the different specimens found).

Alternatively, this fossils found to date could be the remains of a small herd, with animals at various ages of maturity within it, this would also explain some of the subtle differences between the fossilised skeletons.

Scelidosaurus was an early armoured dinosaur, with an estimated maximum length of around 4 metres.  It was quite a heavy-set dinosaur with bony plates and bumps providing armour-like protection for the back and flanks.  Another specimen of Scelidosaurus has traces of a skin impression, this reveals that the skin had a bumpy texture, being made up of a mosaic of small, rounded scales.

The picture of Scelidosaurus was taken from the Everything Dinosaur party model collection of dinosaurs.  Unfortunately, there are very few models of this dinosaur about, perhaps the most famous model was the black Scelidosaurus that was produced by the Invicta company in the 1960s.  This series which was for such a long time the mainstay of the Natural History museum’s model collection has been out of production for some years.  The little Scelidosaurus model (priced at 27 pence when one of our team members bought it in the mid 1970s), can still be seen in one of the Natural History museum’s dinosaur displays.  The Invicta models are highly prized by model collectors, we think the Scelidosaurus model would be worth a lot more than 27p today.

Unusually, the specimen first found by David Sole, is an almost-complete skeleton.  The fossil bones are articulated, meaning that each bone was linked and in its correct place. Equally striking were the long, thin tendons that supported the animal’s huge stomach, which still stretched from the backbone – and the fact that the creature’s gullet contained a discoloured area, with the remains of its last meal.

Commenting on this particular find, a researcher stated: “It could be that Scelidosaurus only lived on one island, a few miles away from Lyme Regis, which would explain why the species has not been reported anywhere else. We began to wonder if we were looking at a family group that was washed off the island by a sudden tsunami, similar to what we saw on Boxing Day 2004.”

Alternatively, the reason why Scelidosaurs have been found in marine sediments, with many of the fossils in an upside-down orientation could be because these animals were washed out to sea and then slowly sank to the bottom.  If Scelidosaurs lived well inland, perhaps in upland areas that were drained by rivers, flash floods could occur drowning individual animals and transporting them down the valleys out to sea.  During decay, the corpse would have become bloated and filled with gas, buoying up the body for some time.  The animal would have floated on its back, with the heavy armour acting like a keel on a ship.  Eventually, the body cavity would have ruptured , the gases escaped and the corpse would sink, settling on the seabed with the belly upwards.

However, these animals came to be found in Dorset remains a bit of a mystery.  A dark patch where the gullet would have been perhaps indicates that this particular animal vomited, this is often seen in animals that are drowning, so maybe this animal was swept out to sea from an island that was hit by a tidal wave.  Interestingly, crocodile teeth have been found in the mouth of this fossil, not evidence of predation but more likely vomitted up items from the gizzard as this plant-eater may have swallowed hard objects to help it grind up and digest tough plant material.  Certainly, a low-lying island would have few stones suitable for swallowing (assuming a sandy beach), crocodiles shed their teeth regularly and these would have helped with the digestion process once swallowed and provide plenty of calcium to help form the bony armour.

It seems that the fossils of Scelidosaurus can be interpreted in many different ways, perhaps they were upland animals, washed out to sea in a flash flood, or maybe they lived on small islands that were swamped by a tsunami, evidence can be put forward to support each theory.

Ironically, had it not been for the storms that occasionally batter the south coast of England these fossils would never have been eroded out of the rocks allowing them to be found and studied in the first place.

Feathered Velociraptor from Bullyland

By | May 18th, 2008|Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Main Page|3 Comments

New Feathered Velociraptor model from Bullyland of Germany

It has been widely accepted for almost 40 years that birds are descended from a group of dinosaurs – the Theropods.  Although similarities between the skeletons of modern birds and the fossils of certain small, bipedal dinosaurs had been pointed out as long ago as the 19th Century with scientists such as Thomas Huxley commenting on their similar anatomies, it was the ground breaking work of the American palaeontologist John Ostrom on the dinosaur that was to become known as Deinonychus that paved the way.

John Ostrom’s work was published in 1969 and he depicted Deinonychus, a man-sized Dromaeosaur from North America as an active, agile, speedy hunter.  Since then the scientific view of dinosaurs has been dramatically changed.  Gone are the perceptions of lumbering giants to stupid to survive, instead we now see dinosaurs as a highly successful and adaptable group with a wide range of adaptations to help them survive in a wide variety of environments.

Thanks to the amazing fossils that have been excavated from the Liaoning Province in the Sihetun region of north-eastern China scientists have an opportunity to study a whole array of small, feathered Theropods.  Over the last twenty years or so, an amazing number of fossils have been discovered in this area.  It seems that around 125 million years ago, in the early Cretaceous this part of China was covered in lush forests and large lakes in a volcanically active area.  Occasional eruptions covered the area in fine volcanic ash and dust, rapidly entombing many of the inhabitants of the area.  Many other creatures of the forest were suffocated by gas escaping from the volcanic fissures.  The fine volcanic dust has helped preserve some remarkable details of those animals and plants unfortunate to succumb to the volcanic activity.  The dust and ash sealed out oxygen preventing decay and the fine grained structures of these materials has permitted the preservation of details of hair and feathers.

Hence the preservation of a number of feathered dinosaurs, the first of which Sinosauropteryx was discovered in 1995.  Here was fossil evidence to back up what many scientists had speculated about for some time – that many small dinosaurs were covered in feathers.  It has been suggested that simply proto-feathers evolved to help keep these small active animals warm, a form of insulation.  Later plumes and crests may have evolved for display purposes.  Many of these feathered dinosaurs were classed as members of the Maniraptora, a group that also includes the Dromaeosaurs like Deinonychus and Velociraptor.  If this type of dinosaur had feathers, why not the likes of Deinonychus and Velociraptor?

Although, there is very little fossil evidence to back up this theory, it is now widely believed that little Dromaeosaurs like Velociraptor were feathered too.  The covering of feathers would help to keep these little animals insulated, a necessity given their active, warm-blooded lifestyles.

Building on the scientific speculation, Bullyland of Germany have introduced a feathered Velociraptor model, depicting how this 1 metre high dinosaur might have looked.  This model is a new addition to the Bullyland prehistoric animal  models range.

This model is depicted in 1:20 scale and shows the latest scientific interpretation of this fierce little dinosaur, whose fossils have been found in Mongolia, China and Russia.  It is suspected that like most other dinosaurs, Velociraptors had good colour vision, so the blue face band and the black feathered head crest have been added in deference to the theory that feathers and colours may have been used for display, especially as these animals are thought to have lived in packs.

Wandering Massospondylus – Prosauropod on the Move

By | May 16th, 2008|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans|0 Comments

Gastroliths of Massospondylus – Long Distance Travellers

The long-necked, long-tailed herbivore from the Early Jurassic known as Massospondylus lived in two different parts of the world.  There was M. carinatus, named in 1854 by Sir Richard Owen, the English anatomist and scientist who first coined the term Dinosauria and the much more recently described Massospondylus kaalae whose fossils have been found in Southern Africa.  A number of other species have been proposed over the years, but these are now mostly regarded as nomen dubium.

It is likely that this dinosaur was mainly herbivorous, although it could also have eaten smaller reptiles and insects.  The hind legs were much longer than the front ones and it has been suggested that this dinosaur was a facultative quadruped, that is, it normally adopted a bipedal stance but perhaps when feeding it adopted a four-legged stance.  A number of stomach stones (gastroliths) have been found in association with Massospondylus fossil remains.  Such stones would have been held in a gizzard and used to help crush vegetation that these five metre long dinosaurs had swallowed.  The action of the stones in the muscular gizzard would have helped grind the tough vegetation into a digestible pulp.  Many types of modern birds do exactly the same today.

Fossils of a Massospondylus discovered in Zimbabwe (southern Africa) had gastroliths preserved in the dinosaur’s belly area that had came from a distance of over twenty kilometres away (twelve miles).  It seems that these Early Jurassic dinosaurs were fussy over the types of stone that they swallowed to help them digest their food.

More Dinosaur Trackways Reported from Korea

By | May 15th, 2008|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Main Page|0 Comments

Baby Sauropod Trackways Reported from South Korea

The National Heritage Centre under the National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage of the South Korean Government announced this week that more evidence of the country’s dinosaur past had been discovered.  South Korea is fast building a reputation for exceptional Mesozoic body and trace fossils, a number of important finds have already been studied but this new discovery may shed light on the ontogeny of dinosaurs (the development of individuals – how dinosaurs grew).

A number of discoveries have been made in South Korea recently, to read more trace fossils found in this country: Two-toed footprints found in Korea, evidence of Dromaeosaurs

A series of fossilised trackways have been found in Euiseong County, North Gyeongsang Province in the south-east of the country.  These well preserved trace fossils seem to show the footprints of two small Sauropod dinosaurs, possibly juveniles.  The fossils have been dated to the mid Cretaceous, around 110 million years ago (Albian faunal stage).

A view of the Fossilised Trackways

Picture Credit: South Korean News Service

The small Sauropod trackways are highlighted by the red dotted lines.  In total, 61 Sauropod footprints have been found, stretching across 4.25 metres, making this the longest fossil trackway of baby dinosaurs found to date.  The footprints were made as these small dinosaurs, wandered across muddy land, the area is criss-crossed with other trackways made by dinosaurs, some of which can be seen in the diagram.

The direction of travel is difficult to make out in the picture, although the Sauropod trackway on the left, indicates that this animal was travelling from the top of the picture to the bottom, the other trackway is too unclear in this picture to make out the direction of travel.  The lack of any object such as ruler or pencil to provide scale, makes it difficult to interpret the evidence.  It is almost impossible to relate any trace fossils such as footprints to a particular genus, although the imprints are typical of Titanosaurids (a branch of the Sauropod family that was relatively common in the southern hemisphere during the Cretaceous).

It is not known what sort of Titanosaur made these trackways, or indeed if it was a Titanosaur, as the morphology of the animal may change as they grow bigger.  Titanosaurs were long-necked, heavy set, herbivorous dinosaurs.  A typical Titanosaur was Saltasaurus (a genus of Titanosaur known from South America).

Little is known about the ontogeny of dinosaurs, how animals such as Titanosaurs could hatch from an egg no bigger than a football and grow into huge beasts over 20 metres long and weighing tens of tonnes.  Certainly, the Titanosaurs represent some of the largest land animals ever to have lived and giants like Paralititan (Egypt), Argentinosaurus and Antarctosaurus (South America) could perhaps exceed 30 metres in length and weigh upwards of 100 tonnes.

Interpreting these fossil trackways are complicated due to the lack of other fossil evidence related to baby dinosaurs.  Adult Titanosaur footprints are easily distinguished from other Sauropod footprints such as Diplodocids and Brachiosaurids by their relatively wider gait, but very little is known about how dinosaurs grew up.  Perhaps, if these tracks were made at the same time, this might indicate that juveniles stayed together in a creche for protection, although any such deductions are highly speculative given the evidence from the fossil record discovered to date.

The Government of South Korea has applied to UNESCO for part of the country’s coastline where Cretaceous sediments are exposed to be given World Heritage status.  This would give this area the same preservation status as other natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef off Australia.

The Proportion of Plant-Eating Dinosaurs to Meat-Eating Dinosaurs

By | May 14th, 2008|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page|0 Comments

The Proportion of Herbivorous Dinosaurs Compared to Carnivorous Dinosaurs

Palaeontologists can determine what a long, extinct dinosaur ate if cranial material such as jaw bones and teeth are found in association with other skeletal material.  Of the twelve hundred or so known species described to date, more plant-eating dinosaurs have been identified than meat-eating ones.  It has been suggested that basal members of the Dinosauria were all bipedal, cursorial carnivores and plant-eating was a later adaptation as this group of reptiles diversified.  If this is the case, then it suggests that the Saurischian dinosaurs came first with the first Ornithischian members of the Dinosauria evolving later.

Of all the dinosaur discoveries made to date, it has been estimated that around 65 percent of all the specimens represent plant-eating dinosaurs.  Some scientists have speculated that if they were able to describe every species of dinosaur that had ever lived, the ratio of plant-eating dinosaurs to meat-eating dinosaurs would actually be higher.  A ratio in excess of 70:30 in favour of herbivorous (or semi-herbivorous) has been suggested.

Dinosaur Bones Bugged by Insects

By | May 13th, 2008|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Main Page|0 Comments

Scientists Identify Probable Cause of Strange Marks on Dinosaur Bones

Palaeontologists have long been perplexed by dinosaur fossils with missing pieces – sets of teeth without a jaw bone, bones that are pitted and grooved, even bones that are half gone. Now a Brigham Young University study has put forward a thesis that attempts to identify the culprits: ancient insects that munched on dinosaur bones.

Brigham Young University professor Brooks Britt will publish his study of these dinosaur bone-eating bugs in the May edition of the scientific journal “Ichnos”.  An Ichnologist is a scientist who specialises in studying trace fossils, fossils that preserve the activity of animals, such as their tracks, trails, burrows and such like.  Britt’s idea for this study came when he first noticed the unique markings on the bones as an undergraduate studying at the University.

“As students we noticed these marks and thought it might be due to algae or insects and we started calling them ‘bug bites,’ just for fun,” Britt said.

Years later, current Brigham Young student Anne Dangerfield also wondered about the markings and teamed up with Britt to investigate the cause. They studied insect traces on the 148-million-year-old remains of a Camptosaurus, a plant-eating specimen discovered in Medicine Bow, Wyoming in 1995.

“I knew this trace was something different because I had been looking at fossil termite traces all summer, so I knew we needed to check it out,” Dangerfield said.

Their analysis revealed that beetles, from the family entomologists call Dermestidae, left the markings on the Camptosaurus. Dermestid beetles still exist today and are typically brown or black, oval-shaped and feed on flesh, hair, skin or the horns of carcasses.

Beetle Larva Damage to a Dinosaur Vertebra

The groove cut into the anterior of a vertebra has been made by a Dermestid beetle larva.

By studying the habitat of modern species of Dermestid beetle, the team were able to make assumptions about the climate in the late Jurassic, the time when the Camptosaurus lived.  Information about the beetle’s typical habitat reveals the climate at the time of the Camptosaurus’ death probably had 60-80 percent relative humidity and a temperature of 77-86 F. By comparison, the average yearly temperature in Medicine Bow is now 43.5 F.

When the dinosaur died near what is now Medicine Bow, the carcass was consumed by other insects. The beetles then infested the Camptosaurus within months of its death.

In addition to shedding light on Wyoming’s ancient climate, Dangerfield and Britt’s work shows Dermestid beetles existed much earlier than previously thought. The traces on this Camptosaurus predate the oldest body fossils for these beetles by 48 million years.  Insect fossils are particularly rare.  Their delicate bodies are not easily fossilised, although a number are trapped in tree resin, which under the right circumstances can form amber, allowing scientists to examine the organic remains trapped inside in minute detail.  With beetles, occasionally entire animals are preserved but more often it is an isolated wing sheath, the hard carapace that is discovered preserved as a fossil.

“This information gives us an idea of the environment during the Jurassic period and the evolution of insects,” Dangerfield commented.

To analyse the markings on the bones, Britt went to his family dentist for molding materials, allowing Britt to more quickly create replicas of the bone traces to work with.

He took the castings back to University’s Earth Science Museum where he used an electron microscope to look at the mandible markings in the bone, examining eating patterns and the width between the teeth marks. Britt and Dangerfield compared the marks to information about the mandibles of moths, termites, mayflies and Dermestid beetles – all known to consume bone – to determine the identity of the insect.

“Other people have thought they have seen Dermestid beetle marks, or they have interpreted termite marks as Dermestids, but this paper provides a guide to identifying insects from the bone traces,” the professor said.

Britt and Dangerfield continued their research by looking at more than 7,000 bones from various quarries and found that insect traces on dinosaur bones are quite common, but Dermestid beetle traces were found only on the Camptosaurus skeleton from Medicine Bow.

“Dr. Britt’s work is really exciting and delves into unique aspects of palaeobiology that few scientists have yet explored,” said Eric Roberts, an expert in dinosaur decomposition who teaches at South Africa’s University of the Witwatersrand. “Insects are among the most diverse and abundant organisms on the planet, yet we know next to nothing about the fossil record of insects because of their extremely limited preservation potential.”
