Wow, bright orange crocodiles?! I think I've seen it all now!

(Also, I've pinned this, since it's something we'll probably want to come back to every now and then :) )

Stunning Fossil Discovery Reveals a New Dinosaur With Iridescent Feathers
It may have been as bright as a hummingbird.

(Velizar Simeonovski, The Field Museum, for UT Austin Jackson School of Geosciences)

The discovery that dinosaurs were feathery, not leathery, means we've had to rethink how they might have looked - and now there's evidence that at least one dinosaur could have been as brilliantly coloured as some of the most jewel-hued modern birds.

Caihong juji, a name that means "rainbow with the big crest" in Mandarin, was a tiny, duck-sized dinosaur from China. The fossil it left behind indicates a bony crest on its beak, and a brilliant, iridescent ruff of feathers around its neck - the earliest evidence of a colour-based display.

The impression of the skeleton can be seen in brown and the feathers in black. (Hu, et al., 2018)

A little more than 200 million years ago, a four-fanged pterosaur flew over the vast desert of Triassic Utah snagging other reptiles with its toothy mouth, until it met its untimely end on the banks of a dried-up oasis, new research finds.

Wow, and I thought ostriches were large :O

Although, this one sounds like it would have been still more intimidating. It's called Dynamoterror, and it was a close relative of T. rex, discovered from an 80-million-year-old fossil in New Mexico:

I hope @ Nick's pet tumbleweed wasn't too terrified by it :'( ...
