The remains of duckbill dinosaurs were found in the Arctic

An amazing discovery was made by the staff of Hokkaido University and their colleagues from the Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. Paleontologists found evidence that duckbill dinosaur lived in northern Alaska.

Scientists noted that the Arctic was extreme area with lower temperatures. It was considered that this territory was almost uninhabited for megavertebrates. However, the new discovery refutes this fact.

Meanwhile, the Arctic fitness and adaptation of dinosaurs was noted in the remains. Also, the morphological similarity of the fossil confirms the faunal entanglement between the Arctic and middle latitudes. It was reported by hotgeo.ru. Previously, scientists attributed them to aquatic animals, but, as it turned out, they lived on the plains and ate solid food.
