Tuck into this breathtaking SA dino breakthrough
Using a specialised X-ray machine in France, Wits scientists have discovered how herbivorous dinosaurs breathed
SA has again become the backbone of paleontological discoveries, this time with the help of Tucky, a 200-million-year-old dinosaur, and a giant specialised X-ray machine in France.
For years palaeontologists have known how certain species of dinosaurs, such as theropods like the T-Rex and the long-necked sauropods like the Brontosaurus, breathed.
But until now they have had very little, if any, insight into how their cousins, the Ornithischians — herbivorous dinosaurs like Triceratops and Stegosaurus — breathed...
