Where are the Baby Dinosaurs?

Let’s talk about dinosaurs. Because, dinosaurs.

Have you ever wondered why aren’t there many (if at all) baby or adolescent dinosaur bones on display in museums? We have a large amount of different types of dinosaurs with enchanting and colourful names like Piatnitzkysaurus or Bambiraptor (I kid you not), but where are their baby versions? Turns out, some of the dinosaurs with different names are actually just the same dinosaurs of different ages. Dinosaurs, like many of our contemporary animals, can develop or lose certain features and bone structures when they grow older. And  because scientists like to name things, every time they discovered something that looked a little different, they named it something different.

There you go, something fascinating I learned today. Happy new year, folks.
