*** Utah fossils fill hole in dinosaur history

A trove of 100-million-year-old fossils found in Utah has filled a
giant gap in the history of dinosaurs and shed light on how some of
them may have gone extinct, scientists said Tuesday. The bones and
other fossils were found at Cedar Mountain in central Utah, and show
the long-necked treetop browsers had already died out in favor of
animals who could munch ground cover. Richard Cifelli of the
University of Oklahoma and colleagues at Brigham Young University say
they also found the oldest-yet remains of a Gila monster. Full story,
