A trio of paleontologists announced the discovery of a tracksite in Alaska's Denali National Park filled with duck-billed dinosaur footprints that demonstrate the animals lived in multi-generational herds and thrived in the ancient high-latitude, polar ecosystem. The findings have been published in Geology, the flagship journal of the Geological Society of America (GSA). Casts of the tracks are on view at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Dallas, Texas.

Paleontologists from the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas have discovered a new genus and species of a tyrannosaur that once roamed the ancient Arctic lands of Northern Alaska.  Formally named Nanuqsaurus hoglundi, the animal is a pygmy tyrannosaur, whose first name is in honor of the Inupiat people whose traditional territory includes the land where these bones were found.  The second name is in honor of Dallas entrepreneur and philanthropist Forrest Hoglund, whose extraordinary leadership helped raise $185 million to build the new Perot Museum, which opened in late 2012.
