A paper in Nature Communications stated certain dinosaurs created nesting habitats near geothermal vents in order to lay their eggs. Much like migratory birds, some neosauropods had specific nesting grounds. A study conducted in northern Argentina revealed that 80 clutches of dinosaur nests were located within 3 meters of geothermal conduits. This discovery assists scientists in exploring the selection and environment of dinosaur nests.
