“Dinosaurs were neither sluggish like lizards nor high-energy like mammals, but something in between, a study suggests.
The work stakes out a rare middle ground in the long-running debate over whether dinosaurs were ‘cold-blooded’ ectotherms, which use the environment to adjust their internal temperature, or ‘warm-blooded’ endotherms, which regulate their body temperature from within. ‘There’s a third way,’ says John Grady, a biologist at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.” – Alexandra Witze, June 12, 2014, Dinosaurs neither warm-blooded nor cold-blooded, Nature News, Nature Publishing Group
