Raptors: Look under your floorboards!

Postby blarg(!) » Sun Mar 25, 2007 5:40 am UTC

I found this article on Slashdot: http://science.slashdot.org/article.pl? ... 2&from=rss

"Scientists have long puzzled over how some dinosaurs and other creatures survived the asteroid impact that supposedly caused the KT mass extinction 65 million years ago and wiped out all the big dinosaurs. One idea has been that smaller animals, including mammals, could have endured the fallout, the big chill, the subsequent volcanoes, and whatever else by burrowing. Now scientists have come up with the first evidence of burrowing dinosaurs. They speculate that underground dens might explain how some dinosaurs got through long, dark winters at high latitudes, too."
