The Jurassic Park movies portrayed a prehistoric soundscape filled with brachiosaurus bellows, velociraptor shrieks and Tyrannosaurus rex roars. But because paleontologists have never found fossilized vocal organs from any of those dinosaurs, we don’t really know what their world sounded like.
A new study of a 66-million-year-old bird may provide insight into some of the noises possibly heard at the end of the dinosaur era.
