Dinosaurs may have been good parents

The mystery of whether dinosaurs were indifferent parents or cared for their young may have been solved by a discovery in China.

More than 100 million years ago an adult dinosaur was buried alive while still trying to protect a clutch of 34 offspring. The case of the parrot lizard dinosaur, psittacosaurus, could be the first in which a dinosaur was clearly showing a degree of parental care beyond guarding a nest of eggs or a clutch of its newly hatched offspring, scientists said.
