    OT: Study suggests that dinosaurs were warm-blooded – May 29, 2015
    Excerpt: “Upon re-analysis, it was apparent that dinosaurs weren’t just somewhat like living mammals in their physiology—they fit right within our understanding of what it means to be a ‘warm-blooded’ mammal,” he said.,,,
    ,, the original study had scaled yearly growth rates to daily ones in order to standardize comparisons.
    “This is problematic,” Dr. D’Emic explains, “because many animals do not grow continuously throughout the year, generally slowing or pausing growth during colder, drier, or otherwise more stressful seasons. ,,,
    He added that the growth rates were especially underestimated for larger animals and animals that live in very stressful or seasonal environments—both of which characterize dinosaurs.,,,
    ,,, dinosaurs were ‘warm-blooded,’ not occupants of a special, intermediate metabolic category.
