I think they probably just had to drink water or
go thirsty. If they ate food with a lot of water
in it, that would have helped them.
When food and water get scarce, animals don’t
have a lot of choices. Sometimes they can move
to places that have more food and water, but there
are usually already animals there, so they
would have to compete for the food and water.
They could get less active so that they would need
less, but they can only do that for a while. Some
animals can hibernate, but we don’t know if
dinosaurs could do that.
If the food and water were only limited sometimes,
they could put on a lot of fat until they needed
it. When we break down fat, it becomes carbon
dioxide and water. We breathe out the carbon
Do you think it’s better to be big or small when
food and water are scarce?
Thanks for asking,
