BUCKLAND, WILLIAM

William Buckland (1784-1856) was a British fossil hunter, clergyman, and Oxford don (a Reader in Geology and Mineralogy) who discovered Megalosaurus in 1819 and named it in 1824. It was the first dinosaur ever described scientifically and the first theropod dinosaur discovered. He always collected his fossils in a large blue bag, which he carried around most of the time.

BUGENASAURA

(pronounced BOO-gene-ah-SAWR-ah) Bugenasaura (meaning "large-cheek lizard") was an ornithopod (a plant-eating dinosaur) from the late Cretaceous period. Partial fossils were found in South Dakota, USA. It was named by paleontolgist Galton in 1995. The type species is B. infernalis. Bugenasaura may be the same as Thescelosaurus or the pachycephalosaur Stygimoloch spinifer.

BULLATOSAURIA

(pronounced buh-LAH-toh-SAWR-ee-ah) Bullatosauria (meaning "inflated lizard") were a group of advanced theropods (bipedal, intelligent, meat-eating dinosaurs) from the late Cretaceous period. Bullatosaurs include Troödontids and Ornithomimids.

BURGESS SHALE

The Burgess shale is an incredibly fossil-rich area in the Canadian Rocky Mountains (in British Columbia). This Lagerstatten (a geological fossil deposit rich with varied, well-preserved fossils) is replete with fossils from the Cambrian Period, roughly 500 million years old. The Burgess shale was discovered in 1909 by Charles Doolittle Wolcott, who was the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. at the time. Fossils from this area include early representatives of most modern groups, including worms, sponges, shrimp-like crustaceans, and jellyfish.
