Fossil snake eating dinosaurus hatchling

An articulated snake fossil from uppermost Cretaceous horizons of Indo-Pakistan that is among the first such known from the subcontinent prior to the Miocene. The new snake is preserved in an extraordinary setting - within a sauropod dinosaur nesting ground in association with eggs and a hatchling. The new fossils provide the first evidence, to our knowledge, of snake predation on hatchling dinosaurs and a rare example of non-dinosaurian predation on dinosaurs.

Scientists have at last uncovered the closest living relative of the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex, the most feared and famous of all the dinosaurs. For the first time, researchers have managed to sequence proteins from the long-extinct creature, leading them to the discovery that many of the molecules show a remarkable similarity to those of the humble chicken.

Who are you calling chicken?

I have had young roosters and they hunt as a pack, more similar to Velociraptors as shown on Jurassic Park then T. Rexes, chasing my dog away to get at his food.
