Grass Existed in Age of Dinosaurs

Published fredag 18 november 2005 kl 11.27

A Swedish researcher has discovered that dinosaurs ate grass, which means that grass existed 40 million years earlier than previously believed.

Writing in Friday’s edition of the journal “Science”, Caroline Strömberg of Stockholm’s Museum of Natural History says at the request of paleontologists in India she examined fossilized dinosaur dung from 65 million years ago. She found traces of grass.

It had been believed that grass evolved together with grazing mammals, after the dinosaurs died out.
