High-billing Chatham eye doctor accused of misconduct 'itching' to tell his side of story A prominent Chatham eye doctor facing allegations of misconduct, incompetence, and making inappropriate claims to the Ontario Health Insurance Plan is “itching” to tell his side of the story. Chatham ophthalmologist Christopher Anjema, who gained notoriety recently for being the highest-billing doctor in the region and fourth highest in Ontario, wrote a Facebook post Thursday thanking people for supporting him. 

The dinosaur , whose nearly complete skeleton was unearthed from 72 million year old marine deposits in Mukawa Town in northern Japan , belongs to a new genus and species of a herbivorous hadrosaurid dinosaur Science News. from research organizations. A new duck - billed dinosaur .

Cinematic favorites like Triceratops, duck - billed dinosaurs and Tyrannosaurus rex traversed North Dakota. The state and its fossils have a unique, constantly evolving relationship, thanks in The bones I was to excavate last June were hidden, except for two inches of a rib sticking out of the mountain.

It includes the skull, jawbones, spine, ribs and teeth, plus the front and back legs.

Experts believe the discovery is globally significant because it shows Asia and the United States were joined by land in the age of dinosaurs.

HOW DID THEY LOOK?

Kamuysaurus was a member of the species known as Edmontosaurus that roamed Earth during the Late Cretaceous.

They were among the most successful and diverse group of dinosaurs. They were large bodied with stiff tails.

They had specialised jaws and teeth that enabled them to grind down tough ferns and leaves.

The front of the snout was flattened, like a duck's bill.

They walked on all fours. Some had elaborate crests and other headgear, possibly for attracting mates.

Corresponding author Professor Yoshitsugu Kobayashi said: 'It is rare and pretty astonishing to find an almost complete skeleton.

'There is no doubt that this is the best preserved large dinosaur skeleton from Japan.'

It has been named Kamuysaurus japonicus after a spiritual being worshipped by people on Hokkaido Island, in northern Japan, where it was dug up.

The plant eater was more duck billed than most with a face like a shovel at the end of a long neck.

It was 26 feet (eight metres) long and weighed more than five tons. It was at least nine years old at the time of its death, making it a juvenile.

It had a thin, bony crest on its head - a feature of the hadrosaur family to which it belonged.

Kamuysaurus was a member of the species known as Edmontosaurus that roamed Earth during the Late Cretaceous. They inhabited North America with fossils found in places such as Montana, Nebraska and New Jersey.

After analysing hundreds of bones dating back 72 million years , the team led by Hokkaido University concluded the skeleton once belonged to a new species of hadrosaurid dinosaur , a herbivorous beast that roamed the Earth in the late Cretaceous period.

A newly discovered fossil site in China that dates back 518 million years contains more than 50% previously unknown species A rare disease that still affects humans today has been found in the fossilized vertabra of a duck - billed dinosaur that roamed the Earth at least 66 million years ago .

Genetic analysis found it is closely related to the dinosaurs Kerberosaurus and Laiyangosaurus from Russia and China, respectively.

Comparing it with 70 other hadrosaurs also detected so many unique characteristics that it was identifed as a dinosaur completely new to science.

Its discovery in marine sediment adds to evidence that hadrosaurs, although spending most of their time on land, liked to live by water.

They were among the most successful and diverse group of dinosaurs. They were large bodied with stiff tails. They had specialised jaws and teeth that enabled them to grind down tough ferns and leaves. The front of the snout was flattened, like a duck's bill.

They walked on all fours. Some had elaborate crests and other headgear, possibly for attracting mates.

Coffee and quacks served up at Chengdu duck cafe

Coffee and quacks served up at Chengdu duck cafe Crowds in a Chinese eatery ignore their drinks to gather adoringly around four fluffy white ducks, phones poised ready for pictures, at the latest addition to the country's growing list of popular animal cafes. "Hey! We go", a business in the centre of the southwestern city of Chengdu, is proving perfect fodder for the social media-savvy generation. The four call ducks -- a domesticated breed imported from Europe -- can retail for the hefty price of 10,000 yuan ($1,400) per duck. But the cafe's star attractions are not for sale, and waddle around from table to table to the delight of customers.

Co author Dr Anthony Fiorillo, chief curator at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Texas, said: 'This discovery is not only significant for the people of Hokkaido and all of Japan.

'It has global significance because this dinosaur shows us how the world has been connected through time. Kamuysaurus is closely related to the animal we study from Alaska, Edmontosaurus, a duck-billed dinosaur also found throughout much of western North America.

'Because these dinosaurs are so closely related, they provide further evidence that long ago, Asia and North America were connected.'

Known as the Bering Land Bridge, it ran between Siberia and Alaska. It has been described as 'a dinosaur migration highway'.

The first 13 ribs of Kamuysaurus were stumbled upon by a local resident in 2003. They were originally thought to belong to a prehistoric sea creature called a plesiosaur.

It was only eight years later that it was identified as a dinosaur. So Prof Kobayashi's team carried out two expeditions to the fossil site in 2013 and 2014.

While exploring the same hill, they came across so many more bones they were able to perform a total reconstruction.

The preparation has taken nearly a decade, with the help of a large number of volunteers. Many miscellaneous bones remain to be identified.

Dr Fiorillo added: 'But the fossils clearly demonstrate this is a nearly complete skeleton including multiple skull elements and a nearly complete series of vertebrae and fore and hind limbs.'
