SUCKER! 10 Historic Dinosaur Hoaxes You Won’t Believe We Fell For

SUCKER! 10 Historic Dinosaur Hoaxes You Won’t Believe We Fell For
We’ve managed to clone a few different animals, so what’s stopping us from going full Jurassic Park and pulling some fossil DNA to make new dinosaurs? In 2014 a news article started making the rounds that claimed that a British (or sometimes Chinese) university had pulled it off. The most widely spread article said that geneticists at Liverpool’s John Moore University had successfully created a baby apatosaurus in an ostrich’s womb who they’d named Spot.

Rich people are buying up dinosaurs because museums are too poor to get them

Rich people are buying up dinosaurs because museums are too poor to get them
Museums and scientists increasingly lack the funds to buy dinosaur fossils, which can be auctioned off for enormous sums, an article in the scientific journal Nature yesterday (June 1) explains. This particular fossil, excavated in Wyoming between 2013 and 2015, is expected to go for €1.2 million–1.8 million (US$1.4 million–2.1 million).

Yes, we identified small flakes of the outer layer of the skin from three feathered dinosaurs and a fossil bird from around 125 million years ago. We could see that the fossil cells were jam-packed with fibres of keratin, a tough protein we find in skin, nails and claws.

"Tongues are often overlooked. But, they offer key insights into the lifestyles of extinct animals," said lead author Zhiheng Li in a press statement.

The hospital's images were made to create the exhibition's interactive display, but they could spur future scientific research.

“We can see the internal structure, all of the nasal openings, the vein density, how everything is formed in there,” Jabo explained.

A paleontologist explains why bringing back dinosaurs is a really bad idea

First, bringing back Trex and Triceratops would, I believe, simply be cruel. They lived during the end-Cretaceous period, some 70-66 million years ago, when the world was a much different place. It was considerably warmer, there were no ice caps, sea levels were high and the oceans lapped far onto the land, and the continents were in other positions. Dinosaurs would have breathed different air (there was much more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere then), eaten different food (grasses and flowers had just started to evolve, and there were none of the grasslands or vast flowering forests of today), and interacted with different animals (mammals were little more than ratty creatures scurrying in the shadows).

However, she says, “there is increasing evidence that proteins and other soft tissues can preserve over geological timescales, so I think it would be unwise to say that we will definitely never be able to get DNA from dinosaur fossils.”
