Protoceratops vs. Velociraptor - Who Wins?
Protoceratops was a small, pig-sized plant-eater of late Cretaceous central Asia. Velociraptor was a vicious, turkey-sized raptor that shared the same time and territory. Who comes out on top in a battle between these two dinosaurs?

Utahraptor vs. Iguanodon - Who Wins?
Utahraptor was the largest raptor that ever lived, full-grown adults weighing more than half a ton. Iguanodon was a slow-witted, three-ton herbivore that shared Utahraptor's habitat. Who would win in a battle between these two dinosaurs?

How dinosaur footprints and trackmarks are analyzed by paleontologists, and what they can tell us about how the dinosaurs that made them lived (and died).

The 10 Strangest Dinosaur Names
After long, weary months collecting bones out in the field, cleaning them in the lab with tiny toothpicks, and laboriously piecing them together for display or further study, paleontologists can be forgiven for occasionally bestowing strange names on the objects of their research. Here are the 10 dinosaurs with the weirdest, funniest, and (in one or two cases) most inappropriate names.

The Most Notable Dinosaur Discoveries from 2000 to 2010
This past decade's dinosaur discoveries have turned the world of paleontology on its Jurassic ear. Here are the top 10 dinosaurs (plus one mammal, one pterosaur and one crocodile, for good measure) that helped define the past ten years.

How Was Allosaurus Discovered?
In a way, Allosaurus was discovered not once, but three or four times--thanks to some overeager 19th-century paleontologists who didn't finish their homework. Here's a look at the discovery, and naming, of this famous dinosaur.

How Was Troodon Discovered?
For a dinosaur that was diagnosed on the basis of a single tooth, Troodon has an unusually complicated fossil history. Here's everything you need to know about the discovery, and naming, of Troodon.

How Was Dilophosaurus Discovered?
Thanks to its cameo in the first Jurassic Park movie, Dilophosaurus is an immensely popular dinosaur. Here's the story of the discovery, and naming, of this Jurassic meat-eater.

How Was Spinosaurus Discovered?
Spinosaurus is the most famous dinosaur for which the

How Was Velociraptor Discovered?
One of the most famous dinosaurs ever to be discovered outside the U.S., Velociraptor lived in what is now present-day Mongolia during the late Cretaceous period. Here's the story of the discovery, and naming, of Velociraptor.

How Was Stegosaurus Discovered?
Like many dinosaurs of the American west, Stegosaurus was discovered, and named, multiple times during the late 19th century. Here's a brief fossil history of the world's most famous spiked, plated dinosaur.

How Was Brachiosaurus Discovered?
For such an enormous dinosaur, Brachiosaurus has been reconstructed from surprisingly scanty fossil evidence. Here's a look at the discovery, and naming, of Brachiosaurus.

How Was Triceratops Discovered?
Thanks to its huge, easily preserved skull and close kinship to other horned, frilled dinosaurs, Triceratops has an unusually tangled fossil history. Here's the story of the discovery, and naming, of Triceratops.

How Was Apatosaurus Discovered?
Apatosaurus used be known as Brontosaurus--which is evidence in itself that this dinosaur has had a complicated fossil history, as detailed in this article.

How Was Archaeopteryx Discovered?
In the early 1860's, the discovery of a series of small, birdlike, feathered fossils in a German quarry created an international sensation. Here's the story of the discovery, and naming, of Archaeopteryx.

Spinosaurus, the World's First Identified Swimming Dinosaur
Spinosaurus, the world's biggest carnivorous dinosaur, is also the world's first identified swimming dinosaur, according to a new study published in Nature.

Did Dinosaurs Hunt in Packs?
It's easy to assume that dinosaurs like Velociraptor hunted in packs--but the fossil evidence in support of pack-hunting dinosaurs isn't as clear-cut as you might think.

Is There Any Evidence for Cannibalism in Dinosaurs?
To date, paleontologists have identified only one genus of cannibalistic dinosaur--but during the Mesozoic Era, dinosaurs ate other members of their own species all the time.

Did Dinosaurs Have Arthritis?
Consider it the Jurassic equivalent of an urban myth: dinosaurs suffered from arthritis, the same way people do. Is there any truth to this belief?

Why Aren't Birds Dinosaur-Sized?
Paleontologists agree that birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs. So why aren't any birds the size of T. Rex or Apatosaurus?

Recent Extinctions
Dinosaurs weren't the last creatures on earth to go extinct. Countless birds, mammals and amphibians have also gone extinct in modern times, as you can learn from perusing these articles and lists.
