Here's an article on an interesting fossil discovery in Antarctica:


WASHINGTON - Frozen Antarctica has yielded two of its secrets, previously unknown types of dinosaurs that lived there millions of years ago when the climate was milder.

The discoveries, made thousands of miles apart, were announced Thursday by the National Science Foundation.

That is very interesting. I don't even understand how fish (or anything besides birds and mammals) can survive in the coldest parts of the world :).

Perhaps at the time, it wasn't the coldest part of the world.
Does the word...PANGAEA mean anything to you? :bluush:

Of course I'm aware that the climate has evolved. I guess I just meant it as a trivial comparision that not even knowing something as basic as how antarctic fish regulate their body heat can make dinosaurs seem that much more awe inspiring.
