The world’s oldest dinosaur burrows have been found in Australia, supporting the idea that dinosaurs could live in cold, harsh climates, burrowing underground to survive.

Three separate burrows have been found in all, the biggest 2m long, each built to a similar design and just big enough to hold the body of a small dinosaur.

The 106-million-year-old burrows, the first to be found outside of North America, would have been much closer to the South Pole when they were created.
