<![CDATA[Science in the Café: Why Some Dinosaurs had Horns, Frills and Crests on their Heads]]>

23rd October @ Science Centre Singapore

Storified by Ivan Kwan · Wed, Oct 23 2013 17:52:04

Some dinosaurs sported horns and crests and frills atop their heads that most scientists think were for protection or defence, but new studies show that  these explanations are probably incorrect. The changes in the shapes of these structures as dinosaurs grew up reveal a much more sophisticated explanation, one that reveals dinosaurs to be much more like birds than other reptiles or mammals.

Think about it - how many of these designs actually look like they can be used practically for defense? http://t.co/Og7mGp6wWI · Sean Yap
