The climate of this region was, of course, extremely cold and the animals there – including dinosaurs – had to cope with months of darkness at a time. Scientists have been trying for decades to discover whether dinosaurs adapted in unique ways to survive in those conditions.
A study of these dinosaurs’ bones has revealed structural similarities to their more northern peers.Read more at Monash University
