'The paleontologists realized they had an amazing example of a baby Parasaurolophus on their hands. Even better, they were able to sample the baby's leg bone. As dinosaur bones grow, they develop ring patterns, much like trees.

"It didn't have any rings at all," Farke said of "Joe." "So what that shows is that this animal was under a year old when it died."

The infant dinosaur was already 6 feet (1.8 meters) long, however, an impressive feat when you consider that duck-billed dinos hatched at about the same size as a human infant.'
My gosh! Those of you who have had kids - can you imagine having a regular-sized baby, and having it grow to SIX FEET - the height of a TALL Human - in LESS THAN A YEAR???!!!

Why, you could practically WATCH it grow! Each day, each HOUR...!
