Torvosaurus gurneyi: New Giant Dinosaur Discovered in Portugal Mar 6, 2014 by Sci-News.com Two paleontologists from Portugal have described a new species of giant dinosaur that lived in what is today Europe during the Jurassic period, about 150 million years ago.
The Southern Red Muntjac. Those antlers are crazy! Found in most parts of Asia, they are unlike most deer. They are, in fact, OMNIVOROUS, periodically eating eggs & even hunting & killing small warm-blooded animals! They are also a TUSKED deer with 1'' long fangs & have striking scent glands around their eyes. Additionally, they are not social animals & do not live in herds--they are solitary & extremely territorial. They also have no set breeding season & can conceive throughout the year.
Did you know that there is NO evidence that dinosaurs had feathers? Fossil birds had feathers but land animal dinosaurs have feathers "implied" by evolutionary logic NOT fossil evidence. Sure there are lots of Chinese bird fossils with feathers and perhaps (like modern day) animals like ostriches but sorry no feathers on reptiles...Feathers are desired to tell the tale of evolution & how cold blooded reptiles evolved into warm blooded birds. Keep feathers off dinosaurs!!!
