The passage claims that there is considerable evidence proving that dinosaurs were endotherms. However, the lecturer holds different views against the passage.
The first evidence cited by the passage is the fact that dinosaur fossils have been discovered in Polar Regions. As only endotherms can maintain a temperature well above the surrounding environment, so it is assumed that dinosaurs were endotherms. However, the lecturer points out that the discovery of the dinosaur fossils does not necessarily mean that dinosaurs were active in the polar area, it could be possible that they hibernate during winter or they migrate to warmer area in the winter. Also, the polar area was not as cold as it is today, it could be warm enough for dinosaurs to live thousands of years ago.
The second evidence mentioned in the passage is the leg position and movement of the dinosaur. Yet it is true that dinosaurs had legs underneath their body, same as the modern endotherms, the lecturer argues that this could be because the dinosaurs were so bit that they needed those legs to support more weight, instead of needing those legs to allow sustained physical activity.
The third evidence used in the passage is the presence of Harversian canals in the dinosaur’s bone. As the bones of endotherms usually contain Harversian, it is assumed that Dinosaurs were endotherm. The lecturer does acknowledge the presence of Harversian canals in the dinosaur’s bone. However, the growth ring in the Dinosaur's bone also indicates periods of both rapid growth and slow growth, which is similar to the non-endotherm animals.
All in all, the lecturer does not agree with the passage with the reasons stated above.
