EVIDENCE OF LOW METABOLIC THEROPODS
Oregon State University scientist have completed a
metabolic analysis of the Italian dinosaur specimen of
Scipionyx which had impressions of intestines, liver,
and a variety of other internal organs. What they were
able to find is that this dinosaur had a respiratory
system which was adapted to support bursts of high
activity, but lacked bird style lungs or other anatomical
features suggestive of a sustained high metabolic rate.

DINOSAUR STATE PARK IS ONLINE
You can now explore one of the largest trackways in
North America at the Dinosaur State Park web site.
Underneath a geodesic dome located in Connecticut,
you will find an exceptional display of early Jurassic
fossil tracks that were made 200 million years ago. It
is thought that these tracks were made by theropods
related to Dilophosaurus.
