These sleek predatory dinosaurs really are teenage T. rex

  These sleek predatory dinosaurs really are teenage T. rex Detailed analysis of fossilized leg bones also suggest that this dinosaur icon had an intriguing survival strategy when food was scarce.In a study published in Science Advances on Wednesday, researchers reveal a stunningly detailed analysis on cross-sections of bone from juvenile tyrannosaurs. The results suggest that T. rex’s growth rates varied as it aged, and that these predatory dinosaurs could seemingly slow their growth when food was scarce, potentially giving them an evolutionary leg up.

A marsupial lion the size of a domestic cat , with teeth sharp enough to break bones , has been confirmed as a new genus. The new marsupial lion was previously believed to be part of the Priscileo roskellyae (Thylacoleonidae) genus because of its teeth and small size .

Bone points and pierced teeth found in Denisova Cave were dated to the early Upper Paleolithic. A 73,000-year-old red cross-hatch pattern was drawn on a flake of silicrete, which forms when The fossil of the newly discovered armored dinosaur Akainacephalus johnsoni was found in southern Utah.

A marsupial lion the size of a domestic cat, with teeth sharp enough to break bones, has been confirmed as a new genus. 

Paleontologists from the University of New South Wales discovered the remains of the tiny lion at Australia's Riversleigh World Heritage Area in Queensland, where scientists have been finding fossils for decades.

The new marsupial lion was previously believed to be part of the Priscileo roskellyae (Thylacoleonidae) genus because of its teeth and small size. But when researchers took a closer look at the skull and lower jaw, they noticed the skull anatomy was different from that of other marsupial lions.

"As we found more and better specimens at Riversleigh, we began to realize it didn't belong to that group at all," University of New South Wales' Biological, Earth and Environmental Science Professor Michael Archer told CNN on Friday. "It was a new kind of marsupial that hadn't been seen before. It was a different branch on the marsupial lion family tree." 

In a paper published this month in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, researchers confirmed that the mammal was a new genus of the marsupial lion. 

Researchers think the marsupial lion, named Lekaneleo roskellyae, lived in trees and ate birds, snakes and other small animals with its bolt-cutting teeth.

Finding fossils can be a fact of life for construction crews excavating in California. That 's what happened when crews broke ground to begin the new Bay Area Calaveras Dam in 2013. They just didn't expect to find so many.

Marsupial lions died out 35,000 years ago, so researchers look to fossilized remains to help determine how they died and if climate change had any impact.

"We see many of these very strange groups that don't have any living representatives, slowly disappearing," Archer told CNN. "Understanding this whole relationship between environmental change and biodiversity is very important in understanding and anticipating what's going to happen now."
