Sauroparental care



OK, the question of how Saurpods avoided trampling their young into brontoburgers must be considered... one idea is that the eggs were laid in rather deep/wide burrows dug in the ground. The hatchlings would then live there until they were large enough to emerge, and clever enough to avoid their elders' feet. Another possibility is the young lived on mud-islands created by the adults in lakes.
