I believe Julie and Raul both deserve a point for making good points.

In Reply to: Re: DQ8 Did any Real Dinosaurs Protect their Young? Also posted by Raul G. on January 22, 2001 at 00:34:41:

Alligators and Crocodiles lived with the Dinosaurs and do take care of their young today.

Triceratops, I think, were possibly herd animals living beyond the Mesozoic Era and into the Cenozoic Era according to fossil reports. If they were herd animals, we can guess they did take care of their young when they moved from place to place. Of course Paleontologist still need to find more evidence.

I remember National Geographic reported a discovery of fossil footprints showing a number of dinosaurs (Sauropod- much like brontosaurus) moving through an area with the larger footprints on the outside and smaller footprints on the inside of the pack. This evidence seems to indicate that the dinosaurs were moving along like herd animals and protecting their young in the middle from predators. I believe that they even found Predatory 3-toed Tracks following along the side of the Herd, possibly looking for an easy meal on one of the juveniles.

Doesn't this sound like some herd animals today, except that today, they are mammals? Well I may be jumping the gun on my ideas as most everyone does, but there does seem to be a connection.

As for Duckbill Dinosaurs, I really don't know much about them. Raul, you will have to enlighten us.
