Concavenator corcovatus, the Spanish sensation had a strange hump on its back, the function of which is unknown. Fossils also show evidence of quilled feathers on its arms, although that claim has been disputed. This medium sized Spanish theropod is known from a single relatively complete skeleton.
Cryolophosaurus ellioti has been informally named "Elvisaurus" because of a crest that resembles the haircut of the King. It is the first theropod found on the continent of Antarctica.
Carbonemys was a large side-necked turtle that could reach a length of 2m. It had a powerful bite sufficient to crush young crocodiles.
Microraptor zhaoianus, a four-winged dinosaur, was shown to prey on birds.
Dryptosaurus aquilunguis is known from very fragmentary remains. There are however enough of them to be able to classify it as a tyrannosaurid of some sort. Aiilunguis also means "eagled clawed."
Falcatus falcatus, an odd looking shark.
Kronosaurus queenslandicus, a giant marine reptile from Australia.
Spinosaurus, a fish-eating dinosaur.
Tianyulong confuciusi is is a small ornithischian dinosaur. Well-preserved fossil show traces of filamentous feather-like structures on the back, tail and neck of the fuzzy animal.
Aegyptocetus tarfa, an ancestor of the whale is attacked by a shark.
Tyrannosaurus rex, the famed moviestar dino has been slightly modified in light of new studies. Its skull appears to be narrower than previously thought, while its tail is beefier. We also now know it had feathers.
Ctenoimbricata spinosa, the sea urchin's great great great grandfather.
Europejara olcadesorum, the toucan flying reptile.
Gerobatrachus hottoni, an ancestor of the frog.
Futalognkosaurus dukei, a titanosaur that was one of the largest land creature that has ever lived with a size estimate rivaling Argentinosaurus. It is also one of the most complete titanosaur known with a combined 70% of the skeleton found from three individuals.
Gigantspinosaurus sichuanensis, a medium sized stegosaur is characterized by its extremely large shoulder spines. It might be the most primitive stegosaur known to date.
Jeholornis palmapenis (really?), a large primitive bird with a tail with feathers arranged like a palm tree.
Nyctosaurus gracilis, an extraordinary pterosaur with an unusually large and elaborate cranial crest on top of its head. It is also the only pterosaur to have lost its clawed fingers, indicating that it must have spent the majority of its time in flight. The exact function of the crest is unknown but it is likely that it was used for display. The antler-like crest only appears on the new two specimens described by Bennett (2003), previous specimens being either crestless or with the crest not preserved, indicating a possible sexual dimorphism.
Sauropelta edwardsorum, a small armored nodosaur with long spines projecting from its neck.
If you've ever searched for dinos on the Internet, chances are, you've come across the drawings of Nobu Tamura. What began as a hobby in 2006, when he realized most dinosaurs on Wikipedia had no photos due to copyright, Tamura is now one of the most prolific producers of up-to-date paleo critters on the web. He's shared with us his 19 favorite. For his complete works, check out his blog.
