    Anatomy and phylogeny of the gavialoid crocodylian Eosuchus lerichei from the Paleocene of Europe MASSIMO DELFINO, PAOLO PIRAS, and THIERRY SMITH Delfino, M., Piras, P., and Smith, T. Anatomy and phylogeny of the gavialoid crocodylian Eosuchus lerichei from the Paleocene of Europe. Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 50 (3): – For more than a hundred years, Brontosaurus — the long-necked and long-neglected icon of the Ancient West — has been dismissed as a mere duplicate in the record books of natural history. But new research released today concludes that the lumbering beast was, in fact, its own type of dinosaur after all.. Not only that: Another dinosaur, known for nearly a century as a species of Diplodocus.

    Glyptodon is part of the placental group of mammals known as order of mammals includes anteaters, tree sloths, extinct ground sloths, extinct pampatheres, and armadillos.. Glyptodon came from South America.A related genus, Glyptotherium, first appeared in the south-west of the modern USA about million years ago as a result of the Great American Interchange. This book tells the story of these great beasts during and just after the Pleistocene, the geological epoch marked by the great ice ages. Megafauna describes the history and way of life of these animals, their comings and goings, and what befell them at the beginning of the modern era and the arrival of by:

Any attempt to assess the nature of this relationship, however, is plagued by many problems, not the least of which are the dual specters of Ernst Haeckel and Walter Garstang, which have long haunted by: The Paleogene is divided into three epochs, the Paleocene, Eocene, and Oligocene. During this relatively short span of time (about as long as the Triassic), the continents began to take on their present form.

General cooling and drying began before the end of the Oligocene, but was probably not a major factor until the middle Miocene. The East Side Story - the Transylvanian latest Cretaceous continental vertebrate record and its implications for understanding Creatceous-Paleogene Boundary events.

Ichthyostega, genus of extinct animals, closely related to tetrapods (four-legged land vertebrates) and found as fossils in rocks in eastern Greenland from the late Devonian Period (about million years ago).

Ichthyostega was about one metre (three feet) long and had a small dorsal fin along the margin of its tail; the tail itself possessed a series of bony supports, typical of the tail.

Darwin observed fossils of glyptodonts, which are now extinct. Living armadillos are the only animals remaining on Earth that are similar to glyptodonts.

Armadillos live in the same places that glyptodonts lived.
