There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

" Borealopelta markmitchelli is a species of nodosaur, a type of ankylosaur. It roamed the Earth during the Cretaceous period, about 110 million years ago.

Its spectacularly detailed ‘mummy’ was found by accident in March 2011 by excavator operator Shawn Funk at the Suncor Millennium Mine in Alberta, Canada.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta, was notified and sent a group of paleontologists to take a look. The researchers soon realized that the rocks contained an armored dinosaur. “Finding the remains of an armored dinosaur that was washed far out to sea was huge surprise. The fact that it was so well preserved was an even bigger surprise,” said Dr. Donald Henderson, Curator of Dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum."

Phylogeny of the ankylosaurian dinosaurs (Ornithischia: Thyreophora)

Abstract
Ankylosauria is a diverse clade of quadrupedal ornithischian dinosaurs whose remains are known from Middle Jurassic to latest Cretaceous sediments worldwide. Despite a long history of research, ankylosaur interrelationships remain poorly resolved and existing cladistic analyses suffer from limited character and taxon sampling. Here, we present the most comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the group attempted to date. The traditional ankylosaurid–nodosaurid dichotomy is maintained. Ankylosauridae forms a well-resolved clade, which includes Zhongyuansaurus, the first ankylosaurid known to lack a tail club. Nodosauridae includes a number of taxa that were resolved either as ‘polacanthids’ or basal ankylosaurids in previous analyses. The use of a broader character sample allows analysis of the interrelationships of all valid ankylosaur species; this has revealed several previously unrecognized relationships. Stegosauria is recovered as the sister taxon to Ankylosauria, while Scelidosaurus is found to be a basal thyreophoran. Dedicated methods for coding continuous characters could be used in future to improve the resolution of ankylosaur phylogeny, particularly in order to explore the relationships within the poorly resolved nodosaurid clade.
