When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs by Dr Paul Sereno

In paleontology, I saw an irresistible combination of travel, adventure, art, biology and geology.

Paul Sereno Ted Talk: What can fossils teach us? - Paleontology video

Paul Sereno gives a brilliant TED talk on how he became a paelontologist and what we have learned from studying fossils. He talks about his amazing expeditions into the Sahara and other difficult environments. And don't miss the footage of Sereno sitting on a live Crocodile in the name of research!

Eodromaeus is one of Dr Sereno's most recent discoveries, a small therapod dinosaur which is the earliest know meat-eating dinosaur. Eodromaeus means "Dawn Runner". In this video Paul Sereno talks about Eodromaeus.

Discoveries of Dr Paul Sereno and his team

Click the links to find out more information on the dinosaurs that Paul Sereno and his team have discovered.

  1. Afrovenator abakensis
  2. Carcharodontosaurus saharicus "Shark-toothed reptile" - I recognise Carcharodontosaurus from Dinosaur King. Kind of an African T-Rex.
  3. Deltadromeus agilis
  4. Eoraptor lunensis Eoraptor is a small, early dinosaur from the Triassic era. Note that at time of writing Eoraptor is described as a meat-eater on Sereno's site, but more recent research by Sereno suggests Eoraptor is a plant-eater.
  5. Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis
  6. Jobaria tiguidensis
  7. Rajasaurus narmadensis
  8. Rugops primus
  9. Sarcosuchus imperator "Flesh Crocodile Emperor" - A 40ft prehistoric croc!
  10. Suchomimus tenerensis. Like the British Baryonyx. Is Rudy from Ice Age 3 a Baryonyx or a Suchomimus?
  11. The African Pterosaur
