Parental care in Therapods?




A story from The Scotsman:

http://heritage.scotsman.com/places.cfm?id=1930822005


Footprints from the Isle of Skye show "...an adult Coelophysis-like dinosaurs with five or six infants following behind. This could be the first evidence of parental care of the Therapod (meat-eating) dinosaur."


A print of a "very young...baby dinosaur" within an adult print was also found.

I found this, by the way, via The Anomalist website. Never knock The Anomalist. This is one of the first places that all the good science stories appear, even though the one above is about six headlines up from the Sea Monster Head being sold on E-bay, which can be found here:
