Study: Predatory dinosaurs had bird-like pulmonary system
...ck, chest and hips, finds similarities between the vertebral
column of dinosaurs and birds that point to a common soft tissue system as the culprit. Though probably not identical to living birds, "it's nothing like the crocodile system as we know it," O'Connor said. "The pulmonary system of meat-eating dinosa...
