We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them —

1. Pterodactyl

The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.

South Africa is participating in largest and most advanced HIV vaccine trial program; makes its own history

image credit A big step for mankind -  South Africa is participating in  HIV  (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine program. This vaccine could prevent HIV infection. The drug trial began last month. This program is called  HVTN 702 . About 5400 adults are participating in this  HIV  vaccine trial. Scientists say that this  HIV  vaccine program is the largest and most advanced trial program in South Africa.   “If deployed alongside our current armoury of proven HIV prevention tools, a safe and effective vaccine could be the final nail in the coffin for HIV,” said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which falls under the American National Institutes of Health (NIH), a co-funder of the trial.   “Even a moderately effective vaccine would significantly decrease the burden of HIV disease over time in countries and populations with high rates of HIV infection, such as South Africa.”  image credit Dr Glenda Gray  is

Ancient alligators which had long legs and run faster than dinosaurs, also ate them

image credit Imagine an alligator with long four legs and runs faster than dogs. Am I crazy ? Probably not. But, this species is now extinct. They lived in the Jurassic Period. The name this amazing creature is Galloping crocodile. It existed 100 million years ago. And also they preyed on dinosaurs!  The most attractive features of Galloping crocodiles are their bone structure. After made research on their bones structure scientists said that they were efficient swimmers but that when they clambered ashore they were also capable of galloping across the plains. But, modern crocodiles crawl on their bellies because their legs sprawl out to the side.  The fossils of this primitive crocodiles are now discovered in North Africa by a group of fossil hunters. Most of the fossils was discovered in the year of 2001.  Hans Larsson , a paleontologist at the University of Montreal, who took part in the expedition which was sponsored by National Geographic, wrote -  "We were surpr
