Dinosaurs lived in the Arctic all year round despite the cold

American scientists have found evidence that dinosaurs that lived in the Arctic lived there year-round. The research results are published by Current Biology.

More recently, scientists have found that dinosaurs could live in cold climates. New research has shown that they bred and raised offspring in the Arctic region.

Nearly a decade of research in northern Alaska has allowed paleontologists to assemble a huge collection of fossilized dinosaur bones. At different times, they lived in the Arctic. All this indicated that the animals lived there, but did not breed. Scientists have not found the bones of baby dinosaurs. Until recently.

Scientists have discovered small bones and teeth of newly hatched dinosaur cubs. By the way, they belonged to different types.

This find refuted the prevailing theory in science about the migration of dinosaurs to warm lands. Different types of dinosaurs that lived in the northern regions of the planet, from miniature to gigantic, were sedentary in the cold and, among other things, multiplied in the north.

According to Professor Gregory Erickson, one of the authors of the article, the researchers’ find is rare. The remains of small dinosaurs are rarely found nowadays because they are fragile and small.
