It’s possible that dinosaurs were neither warm-blooded nor cold-blooded, but had an “intermediate” type of metabolism that has yet to be pinned down. It’s also possible that all dinosaurs were warm-blooded or cold-blooded, but some individual species developed adaptations in the other direction. Viewpoint: No, the long-standing view of dinosaurs as cold-blooded animals is still the most compelling; recent evidence may suggest, however, that some dinosaurs had hybrid metabolisms, or aspects of both hot-and cold-bloodedness. Naturalists have speculated about the nature of fossils since the time of Aristotle ( B.C.), but it was not until the seventeenth century that these.

Scientists have conflicting opinions on this subject. Some paleontologists think that all dinosaurs were 'warm-blooded' in the same sense that modern birds and mammals are: that is, they had rapid metabolic rates.

Other scientists think it unlikely that any dinosaur could have had a rapid metabolic rate. Some scientists think that very big dinosaurs could have had warm bodies.

IN COLLECTIONS. Books to Borrow. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive :. The Dinosaur Heresies: New Theories Unlocking the Mystery of the Dinosaurs and Their Extinction is a book written by Robert T. Bakker. The book sums up the extant evidence that indicates that dinosaurs, rather than being cold-blooded and wholly lizard-like, were warm-blooded, agile creatures more similar to modern birds than to lizards or other : Robert T.

Bakker.Overall, dinosaurs are reptiles. However preliminary note: In this article "dinosaur" means "non-avian dinosaur," since birds are a monophyletic taxon within the clade Dinosauria and most experts regard birds as dinosaurs. The physiology of dinosaurs has historically been a controversial subject, particularly their ly, many new lines of evidence have been brought to.Dinosaurs, the big dumb oafs of the past, are getting a new image from contemporary paleontologists.

Adrian Desmond, an English expert now at Harvard, and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic have done surface-to-volume measurements, comparative studies of limb anatomy, facial structure and brain size. Their conclusion is that dinosaurs truly belong to a (taxonomic) class by themselves.
