NOVA: Arctic Dinosaurs

October is Dinosaur Month. Find out about dinosaurs who didn’t live in swamps, but in the Arctic. NOVA aired a video that followed paleontologists who found dinosaur fossils buried in the tundra. How could these cold-blooded animals survive in such cold? The paleontologists excavated a tunnel through the permafrost to find fossil layers which provided them with hundreds of fossilized dinosaur bones to examine. One kind of dinosaur they found was a Pachyrhinosaurus. Evidence of over fourteen bodies was found in one spot alone.
