endo/ectothermic



So dinosaurs hibernated did they?  At least John Bauer thinks so.
Aristotle thought swallows hibernated, and so did White (of the
Natural History of Selborne fame), who described them as 
"conglobulating", forming a mass of a great many and descending
to the bottom of ponds.  Did dinos run round and round until
they conglobulated?  And then hide at the bottom of ponds?

Or just how did they h ibernate?  One of the reasons they were 
clobbered at the K/T event was that they COULD NOT HIDE from
the disaster as the burrowing mammals, pond-dwelling frogs, and
cranny-hiding lizards could.
