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!

Three new species of lizard have been discovered in the woods of Peru and Ecuador. Called woodlizards, these spiky, colorful reptiles were described recently in the journal ZooKeys. Just over a foot in length, the cute, iguana-like lizards demonstrate yet again that it is a big world that still holds some intriguing surprises for us.

Since its inception in 1999, the Genesis Park website has contained a “store.” In the early days, this was meant to round out the “virtual park” look. To date, we have never actually sold anything at our website directly. But we are excited to announce that by partnering with Pathway Distribution, we will now begin to actually process orders for some merchandise. Three different DVD packages are currently available, as well as our feature book Chronicles of Dinosauria.
A completely new section has been added to our cryptozoology evidence, entitled the Theropod Enclosure It discusses two possible living T. rex creatures and our 2015 expedition that investigated them.

Our Upcoming Expeditions page has been updated to reflect the initiatives planned for the next few years. We are optimistic of an exciting discovery in the near future! The DinoDave website features Dave Woetzel’s speaking schedule and an overview of “The Creation Investigation.”
A couple of recent comments from visitors to Genesis Park:
- Jon writes: “You people are a burden on society. By using your completely false ‘history’ to continue your hateful, religious cause you are hugely responsible for the dumbing down of America. Quit your brainwashing and lies.”
- “Good evening Dave! I really enjoyed your speech at the university of Wyoming! I have already read your book and signed up for your newsletter, and am reading some essays on the website. I just wanted to tell you I appreciate your ministry and believe you are planting seeds in people who are in need!” – Chad
