  The Cedar Mountain Formation of east-central Utah preserves the most complete North American record of life on land during the Early Cretaceous (see Survey Notes v. 37, no. 1, p. 1–5) and has convincing evidence that the basal Yellow Cat Member in Grand County preserves the two oldest dinosaur faunas in North America (see Survey Notes v. 49, no. 1, p. 4–5). A pair of new studies found that some dinosaurs, and possibly some marine reptiles, laid squishy eggs. One study discovered that many dinosaurs, like turtles and snakes, laid soft leather-like eggs—not hard-shelled eggs like most birds.1 A second study found a massive leathery egg about the size of a football in Cretaceous sediments in Antarctica.2 However, they think it was from a marine.

Lucas’s research on fossils has included original contributions to many groups, including palynomorphs, charophytes, late Paleozoic-Mesozoic megafloras, conodonts, fusulinids, brachiopods, mollusks (especially Triassic and Cretaceous ammonites), fishes and many different kinds of amphibians, reptiles . The discovery of the turiasaurs Mierasaurus and Moabosaurus in younger deposits, in the Lower Cretaceous Yellow Cat Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation in Utah, allows scientist to infer that representatives of this group of primitive sauropods migrated into North America via an intercontinental bridge, after the Upper Jurassic (between

  Well, from the late Jurassic through the late Cretaceous periods, much of the Beehive State was high and dry, perfect conditions for the preservation of fossils over tens of millions of years. On the following slides, you'll discover the most famous dinosaurs and prehistoric animals discovered in Utah, ranging from Allosaurus to Utahceratops. They existed from the late Triassic to the end of the Cretaceous Period ( to 66 million years ago). Pterosaurs are the earliest vertebrates known to have evolved powered flight. Their wings were formed by a membrane of skin, muscle, and other tissues stretching .

A new study of the holotype of Riabininohadros weberae from the Upper Cretaceous (upper Maastrichtian) of Crimea (Besh-Kosh) reveals previously unknown fragments of femur, astragalus, and calcaneus.

This taxon is characterized by a complex of primitive characters found in Iguanodontia and basal Ornithischia and its phylogenetic position can be defined as Styracosterna indet. A new fauna of fossil marine reptiles is described from the Late Cretaceous Nanaimo Group of Vancouver Island.

A study on histology and affinities of two bone fragments from the Upper Cretaceous (lower Santonian to/or lower Campanian) of the Western Srednogorie is published by Nikolov et al. (), who interpret these fossils as bones of a titanosaur sauropod, coming from a time interval when sauropods are rare in the fossil record of Europe.

Don't let this discourage any passionate fossil lovers. The Mesozoic is divided into three time periods: the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. Utah's fossil record spans the entire Mesozoic, yielding the fossil bones or the tracks of dinosaurs, and many other plants and animals.

All of Utah's dinosaur-bearing strata are found in eastern and southern Utah. ReBecca Hunt-Foster is an American has worked with dinosaur remains from the Late Jurassic to Late Cretaceous of the Colorado Plateau, Rocky Mountains, Southcentral, and the Southwestern United States of America.

The belemnite species Belemnitella americana is one of the more common fossils from this area and so was designated Delaware's state fossil.

It comes from the inside of a squid-like animal that lived in the seas of the Cretaceous Period. Similar fossils are found in New Jersey and in England.“The skull of Cifelliodon is an extremely rare find in a vast fossil-bearing region of the Western Interior, where the more than species of mammals and reptile-like mammal precursors are represented mostly by isolated teeth and jaws,” said James Kirkland, study co-author in charge of the excavation and a Utah State paleontologist.

Fossil find: a new species. Found in the Cretaceous beds in eastern Utah, the fossil is named in honor of famed paleontologist Richard Cifelli. .
