How Dinosaurs Get Through Winter

Author: Date:8/22/2011 9:17:24 PM

Dinosaurs living in the hard cold and monthly long-darkness were once thought to hibernate during the winter months just to survive. 

That old theory has been put on ice.

Montana State University graduate student Holly Woodward found that the physiology of dinosaurs living inAustralia over 160 million years ago was practically the same as dinosaurs living everywhere else on Earth. During this period, Australia was located in the Antarctic Circle, meaning the dinosaurs that populated the region lived in complete darkness and extreme cold for up to six months at a time.

Now Woodward has opened the door to find out how these dinosaurs made it through the extreme cold.
