  • The question of whether dinosaurs were cold-blooded, like their reptilian relatives, or warm-blooded like their bird descendants, has long been debated in scientific circles.
  • Now, a team of Israeli researchers believes it has found evidence pointing to at least some of the ancient lizards being endotherms: warm-blooded animals.
  • And so the Israeli team checked fossils from Alberta, Canada, comparing the body temperature of cold-blooded mollusks with that of dinosaur species in the region.
