According to a report from The Geological Society of America, an international team of paleontologists has discovered a new dinosaur tracksite in Alaska’s Denali National Park, filled with duck-billed dinosaur footprints.
The find demonstrates that these dinosaurs – collectively referred to as hadrosaurs – not only lived in multi-generational herds but thrived in the ancient high-latitude, polar ecosystem. The Geology paper, “Herd structure in Late Cretaceous polar dinosaurs: A remarkable new dinosaur tracksite, Denali National Park, Alaska, USA,” sheds new light onto the herd structure and paleobiology of northern polar dinosaurs in an arctic greenhouse world.
