Baby dinosaurs hatched in the Arctic 70 million years ago



Baby dinosaurs floated around in the cool area that is now the Alaskan Arctic about 70 million years ago, according to the “unexpected” discovery of more than 100 babies dinosaur bones and teeth there, a new study reports.

It was surprising to find evidence of a prehistoric nursery in such a cold place, the researchers said. Even in the heat Chalk period (145 to 66 million years ago) Alaska had an average monthly temperature of about 43 degrees Fahrenheit (6 degrees Celsius), and for about four months of the year, dinosaurs would have lived in permanent darkness and handled snowfall, they said.
