With reference to the report, China’s dinosaurs (January 31), the mysterious disappearance of dinosaurs has baffled scientists for years now. While natural calamities like volcanic eruptions, flash floods, landslides and tsunamis were previously believed to have led to their extinction, scientists today don’t rule out the possibility of a supernova explosion that could have triggered their end. Hopefully, the discovery of the fossils of the two-legged carnivorous dinosaur in China will shed more light on dinosaurs’ habitats and help scientists unearth the real cause that led to their extinction.
