Dinomorph

OPB | Aug. 23, 2007 1:30 p.m.

University of Oregon professor Kent Stevens explains that previous notions of various dinosaurs’ postures and movements were based on inaccurate readings of fossil bones. Warped by time and impossibly heavy, bones alone give scientists false impressions of how dinosaurs were shaped and how they moved. Thanks to new digital computer technology created by Stevens, we now have a much better idea of just how dinosaurs really lived.
