Antarctica Once Warm
Imagine that: tropical polar regions 70 to 200 million years ago. That certainly paints a different picture of the world, now doesn't it?
New Dinosaur Species
What a find. Two different teams recently found two different dinosaurs, working separately, thousands of miles from each other. A small, quick, meat-eating dino was found on the bottom of the Antarctic sea, and a giant plant-eater was found on the top of a mountain.
The two-legged, 6 to 8 foot carnivorous dinosaur is believed to be an entirely new species related to the tyrannosaurs.
The herbivore, was a primitive 30 foot sauropod with a long neck and four legs. It was found on top of the 13,000-foot high Mt. Kirkpatrick near Beardmore Glacier.
The National Science Foundation calls the discoveries evidence of a lost world.
