A number of recent news and blog items that may be of interest:


Another major dinosaur discovery near where the Psittacosaurus
"family" remains and the big dinosaur (psittacosaur?) skull were found
over the past few weeks in Siberia.

Tomsk State University scientists say they have found the remains of
sauropod dinosaurs (est. 20 m length) on the right bank of the Kiya
River, near the village of Shestakovo in Siberia. The discovery of the
first sauropod bones at the site was back in 1995 and extraction of
more bones has continued with each field season. (in Russian)
