Dinosaur burrows!

Just saw this on the bbc website: Polar dinosaurs used burrows to protect themselves from harsh climate conditions. Personally I never knew that about dinosaurs, it seems you learn something new every day... also, a new species of ornithopod dino was discovered.

Nice find. Another fine example of the versatility of dinosaur behaviour.

The only other known dinosaur burrow was discovered in 2005 in Montana, US.
I seem to remember a reported hadrosaur that was supposed to have been hibernating when it died. I wonder if this is the one they refer to?
