Friendly dinosaurs

How do you learn about the social behaviour of animals that have been extinct for millions of years? Palaeontologist David Hone discusses what the fossil record can – and can’t – tell us about how the dinosaurs lived.

Piecing together the behaviour of long extinct groups is naturally very difficult, but can be done with care. New fossil from the Gobi deserts of Mongolia are helping us work out how these animals lived and died together.

David Hone is a palaeontologist and writer. His research focuses on the behaviour and ecology of the dinosaurs and their flying relatives, the pterosaurs. He writes about palaeontology and science outreach online through his own blog and on the Guardian.
