Dinoes out in the cold

In the excellent TV-series "Walking with the Dinosaurs" one episode centered on Antarctica.

The climate was curiously tropical/subtropical at the time, but with the 6 month winter temperatures would drop below freezing for long periods.

The Dinoes seem to have survived this by going into hibernation for the coldest spells (but for no more than a few days at a time). Volcanic hotspots also helped.

Under the forest canopies the temperatures stayed more tolerable, and many bodies of water stayed unfrozen.

So if the winters of Dragon Pass are short and sharp, the dinoes can propably survive the coldest weeks by huddling in the warmest areas of the pass.

Somebody suggested Delecti's Swamp, but I think that place is quite hostile to life, including the Dinosaurs.


I think I think... Therefore I think I am.
