Were Dinosaurs good parents? Were newly hatched dinos left to fend for themselves, like baby turtles? Or were they protected until they were fully grown, like baby eagles? Citing specific examples from the fossil record and making comparisons with living animals, renowned paleontologist Robert T. Bakker explains to young readers how we know that allosaurus babies didn t have to hunt for themselves; how giant titanosaurs nested in crowded rookeries (and must have walked very carefully ); how Psittacosaurus was a dinosaur babysitter and numerous other fossil finds, all of which indicate that yes, dinosaurs "were "good parents.
