THEROPOD BITE MARKS ON DINOSAUR BONES: INDICATIONS OF A SCAVENGER, PREDATOR OR BOTH?; AND THEIR TAPHONOMIC IMPLICATIONS

Three nearly complete, isolated vertebrae, and a right humerus of a sub-adult hadrosaurine (Ornithopoda: Hadrosaurinae), all from separate individuals and from the Late Cretaceous (late Campanian)

Trophic interactions between larger crocodylians and giant tortoises on Aldabra Atoll, Western Indian Ocean, during the Late Pleistocene

TLDR
An extinct predator–prey interaction between crocodylians and giant tortoises during the Late Pleistocene, when both groups were living sympatrically on Aldabra, is proposed and scenarios for the croc Codylians directly attacking the Tortoises or scavenging on recently deceased animals are discussed.

On a cranial bony nodular protuberance on Mourasuchus pattersoni Cidade et al. 2017 (Crocodylia, Alligatoroidea) from the late Miocene of Venezuela

Abstract Mourasuchus pattersoni, from the late Miocene Urumaco Formation of Venezuela, is the fourth and most recent species described for the genus. The holotype, and only known specimen, is

Rare evidence for ‘gnawing-like’ behavior in a small-bodied theropod dinosaur

TLDR
The pattern of tooth marks on this specimen deviates from most described theropods tooth marks, and given the low volume of meat associated with the ungual, may represent theropod prey bone utilization as part of late-stage carcass consumption, and a behavior similar to mammalian gnawing.

Crocodyliform Feeding Traces on Juvenile Ornithischian Dinosaurs from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Kaiparowits Formation, Utah

TLDR
Direct evidence of feeding by a small crocodyliform on juvenile specimens of a ‘hypsilophodontid’ dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah is presented.

FEEDING TRACES AND PALEOBIOLOGY OF A CRETACEOUS (CENOMANIAN) CROCODYLIFORM: EXAMPLE FROM THE WOODBINE FORMATION OF TEXAS

TLDR
The morphology of the new crocodyliform taxon and the distribution of bite marks indicates it was likely a generalist: an opportunistic predator that fed on a variety of prey, including turtles and dinosaurs.

Bite marks of the giant crocodylian Deinosuchus on Late Cretaceous (Campanian) bones

The giant (~10 m) Late Cretaceous eusuchian crocodylians of the genus Deinosuchus are shown to have left large, blunt, sometimes penetrating bite marks on a significant number of sea turtle shells,

Mammalian assemblages occur at the sites of Detan, Valec, and Dvérce in calcareous and volcanic clay layers at the southern margin of the Doupov Mountains along the Bohemian Rift. The age of the

A new species of the side-necked turtle Foxemys (Pelomedusoides: Bothremydidae) from the Late Cretaceous of Hungary and the historical biogeography of the Bothremydini

Abstract The continental deposits of the Upper Cretaceous (Santonian) Csehbánya Formation of the Bakony Mountains in Hungary yielded abundant remains of a bothremydid side-necked turtle, which are

THE FIRST COMPLETE SKELETON OF SOLNHOFIA PARSONSI (CRYPTODIRA, EURYSTERNIDAE) FROM THE UPPER JURASSIC OF GERMANY AND ITS TAXONOMIC IMPLICATIONS

TLDR
The carcass of the new specimen was embedded in finely laminated limestones and shows little sign of disintegration or scavenging, suggesting hostile bottom conditions with very low water energy during deposition, and agrees with recent published models for the origin of the lithographic limestones of southern Germany.
