Near-complete skeleton of dinosaur that roamed the earth around 150 million years ago sold in auction. Guess how much it is worth?

The specimen is unusual because it is so complete: around 70 percent of the bones are present, and they were found aligned with each other, making it easier to reconnect them during the restoration process.

‘Gnarly’ tumour: New research shows this herbivorous dinosaur got cancer too

The malformation was a manifestation of osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer, making this Centrosaurus, which lived 76 million years ago, the first known example of a dinosaur afflicted by malignant cancer.

US claims largest dinosaur foot ever discovered

The foot bones, found beneath a series of tail bones, extend about three feet (one meter) wide and are believed to belong to a brachiosaur, from a group of extinct herbivores known as sauropods.
The Wyoming brachiosaur is not the largest dinosaur known to man -- since other excavations have turned up fossils from animals that were likely larger -- but it is the biggest foot in evidence.(Reuters photo for representation)

Dinosaurs were dying off long before asteroid hit: Study

Researchers said emergence of toxic plants combined with dinosaurs’ inability to associate the taste of certain dangerous foods had them already decreasing drastically in population.
Researchers claim that as plants were evolving and developing toxic defences, dinosaurs continued eating them despite gastrointestinal distress.(HT/Photo for representation)
