Jurassic dinosaur skull reconstructed with CT scans and 3D modeling

Researchers from South Africa are walking with dinosaurs after recreating the facial skeleton of the Massospondylus carinatus (M. carinatus) dinosaur with CT scans and digital 3D modeling. Kimberley E.J. Chapelle and Jonah N. Choiniere from the Evolutionary Studies Institute and School of Geosciences at South Africa’s University of the Witwatersrand , have produced a 3D representation of the M. carinatus’ skull and brain-case. This is to better understand the growth patterns and appearance of the dinosaur by comparing the scan data to other dinosaur models. Massospondylus Carinatus on two feet.
