Dinosaurs Communication In Focus


Dinosaurs Communication In Focus
Dinosaurs, much like the many species of animal alive today, communicated in very different ways. From complex dance-like movements to more obvious calls and scent markings, each dino marked their territory, warned of potential predators and relayed information regarding food in its own unique way. One of the most interesting examples comes in the form of the hadrosaurid (above), a duck-billed dinosaur family sporting a distinctive bone crest on their heads. These crests were used as a resonating chamber for projecting their calls. Considering the hadrosaur’s modest size and its wide range of predators, the ability to  amplify its calls was no doubt a valuable defensive mechanism.
