Hot Science - Cool Talk "From a Dinosaur's Roar to a Bird's Song"

The 20th-anniversary celebration of Hot Science - Cool Talks! Based on Hollywood movies, many of us imagine that a dinosaur may have roared like a lion, tiger or bear. But what if instead of roaring, dinosaurs instead cooed? By examining birds as living descendants of dinosaurs, Dr. Julia Clarke shares how and why ancient dinosaurs may have produced sounds.
