|Headline||Polar Dinosaur Tracks Discovered in Australia|
|Description||Scientists in Australia have found 24 rare polar dinosaur footprints that were made about 105 million years ago during the last pronounced period of global warming, when the southern coast of the island continent was connected to Antarctica.
Unlike fossils, footprints offer an unusual glimpse into an animal's behavior. The researchers say the Cretaceous period tracks are a significant discovery because they provide a direct indication of how the polar dinosaurs interacted with their environment during an important time in geological history.
