Is it possible that dinosaurs were good parents? For many years, scientists didn't think so. Then an amazing discovery revealed that Maiasaura covered its nest with vegetation to keep its eggs warm. Another exciting find showed that Oviraptor sat on its nest just as birds do. Based on this and other new evidence, scientists now believe that many-if not most-dinosaurs may have cared for their young.
Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld draws from the very latest findings to describe how scientists are continu-ally making new discoveries and drawing new conclusions about what life was like for dinosaurs and their young. The result is an exciting and accessible book, packed with beautiful, informative illustrations and photographs, that brings us closer than ever before to the truth about dinosaur families. Glossary, bibliography, index.
