Dinosaur Swam a Strong Doggy-Paddle

Claw marks on a 100-million-year-old riverbed in China reveal how some dinosaurs doggy-paddled over long distances, scientists say. “What we have are scratches left by the tips of a two-legged dinosaur’s feet,” study researcher Scott Persons, of the University of Alberta, said in a statement. “The dinosaur’s claw marks show it was swimming along in this river and just its tippy toes were touching bottom.”
