Through the analysis of some 120 million years ago, dinosaur fossils, researchers found that dinosaurs also have a special role to care nanny Drake.

These first discovered in northeast China dinosaur fossils for amateur paleontologists discovered fossils of what a big deal it did not. But researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Brandon P. Hedrick and Peter Dodson through careful observation to see one of the clues.

Hedrick said: “I saw one of the photos, I’ll need to know in-depth study.”

This two feet wide fossils have 24 Lujiatun Psittacosaurus (Psittacosaurus lujiatunensis) Drake remains. Lujiatun adult Psittacosaurus maxillary long strong curved beak like a parrot, which is the origin of the name of this dinosaur in China, Mongolia, Russia and the whole territory with such unearthed hundreds of fossils, Lujiatun Psittacosaurus also scientists The most common dinosaurs. But what really is a unique piece of fossil nest in the first 25 dinosaurs, compared to other dinosaurs, dinosaur age and body type are larger – but not yet to be older parents. Instead, the researchers believe that adolescence is a dinosaur – it shoulders the responsibility to protect the small dinosaur at Dinosaur Dinosaur Mom and Dad go out dating.

In modern birds also have the role of this nanny. In fact, studies have shown that 9 percent of the birds make “bird nanny” to protect his family, to avoid the danger of predators. These birds do not breed offspring, but to assume the heritage family genes, protect the healthy growth of chicks role. The nanny could be these small dinosaurs dinosaurs brother or sister.

The researchers believe that the protective effect of dinosaurs nanny can play is also very limited, this dinosaur fossils in the 25 most likely died from the outbreak of volcanic rock or water flow caused by the role. Dodson and Hedrick would be part of the fossil bones to do further research.

Study they also said they can not determine this fossil is not a lair.

“To be sure, this fossil is likely to be a dinosaur nest, but we can not be absolutely sure that this was a nest.” Hedrick said.
