The preservation of this (as yet) unnamed Nodosaur is simply spectacular and could be the best ankylosaur ever discovered although Zuul crurivastator in the post above is another wonderful example.

The vast majority of dinosaur fossils are a few bone fragments here and there - but this one is truly special. :cuppaT:

This story is big atm but I will just post the paper for now.

The astonishing bone shattering bite forces generated by Tyrannosaurus - exerting pressures reaching 431,000 pounds per square inch (2,974 megapascals) at the tips of the massive teeth!

Simply awe-inspiring in the true old fashioned use of the word. :kinell:
