Interesting Items in the News
Recently researchers published the story of an amazingly well-preserved Chinese fossil. (Xing, Bell,et al., “Abdominal Contents from Two Large Early Cretaceous Compsognathids (Dinosauria: Theropoda) Demonstate Feeding on Confuciusornithids and Dromaeosaurids,” PLoS ONE 7(8), 2012.) The clarity of the small theropod dinosaur Sinocalliopteryx gigas allowed the researchers to be able to make out its intact stomach contents! Three birds that were partially digested were so plainly visible that the researchers were even able to make out the species of the bird: Confuciusornis sanctus. This indicates that birds did not evolve as the descendants of these same dinosaurs!
