Dinosaurs Lived In Water Or Land: Debate Continues?

While there are random theories going on of lately about where dinosaurs lived, and there is new addition to the series of perception with a leading scientist claiming that dinosaurs were too big and heavy to support themselves on dry land and they must have lived under water. With tails too large, and bulky, it is rational to claim that they must have lived in water as they cannot move so easily with them on land.

“Every time you see these images, they are always the same. These huge dinosaurs crunching across arid deserts holding these huge tails erect as they are looking around for prey”, claimed Professor Brian J Ford, who is of the view that such huge animal can only live under water. He is of the view that so far no one has been able to find tail marks along with dinosaur footprints, and this in a way supports what he wants to assert.

With the claim hitting the contours of the society, it has not been well received by those who have worked in the field for decades and decades.

In response to the same, Dr. Paul Barrett, Dinosaur Researcher at London's Natural History Museum, has claimed that there has been enough evidence which suggested that dinosaurs were very well adapted to live in dry land, and there should not be any question raised.

Referring to features such as footprints, the structure of the legs, arms, and backbone, dinosaur nests, and dinosaur gut contents, he further claimed that dinosaurs spent a major section of their life on land.

With Prof Ford’s theory not getting the much needed acceptance, it had become all the more imperative that further research is done on the same theory so that some sort of conclusive findings can be presented.
