Did Insects do the Dinosaurs in?

As a dinosaur fan, I am excited to write about anything having to do with these extinct beasts. The latest theory on dinosaurs worth sharing is that insects did them in by spreading disease and also by competing with them as they fed on vegetation. There is evidence of this pressure being found in the fossilized dino dung and some scientist point out that the extinction happened too slowly to be related to an asteroid hitting the earth.

ScienceDaily does an extraordinary job of explaining this concept in detail and in so doing, mentions diseases like leishmania, malaria, intestinal parasites, arboviruses and other pathogens the dinosaurs had to battle.
