"But before you start imagining T-Rex in a bra, Professor Else said dinosaur lactation, if it did in fact exist, would have involved secretions from the upper digestive tract that produce a ‘milk-like’ substance.

“Pigeons, emperor penguins and flamingos all produce ‘milk-like’ substances from crop glands or glands of the oesophagus that they feed to their young through their mouths,” he said.

“Since birds and dinosaurs share much in common I proposed that some dinosaurs likely used this feeding strategy.”

Professor Else’s theory has been published in the latest issue of The Journal of Experimental Biology."

It's Lent. Milk is allowable, I think.

Reptiles don't incubate their eggs, so they are not likely to be around when they hatch, much less feed the hatchlings.

The theories have changed quite a bit over the years.  They have found mixed adult and baby dinosaurs and adults and nests.  I believe the Maiasaur in the US and Protoceratops in Mongolia at least have.  Possibly others.  

And they think they are closer to birds than reptiles.  There are some interesting critters (Archeopteryx) that seem to be a little bit of both.  Not to mention the 'raptor' on Velociraptor means "bird of prey".  This is due to the skeletal similarities.

She also said the same thing largely word for word regarding a study about whether giraffes can swim IIRC.

They're reptiles. We have reptiles now. Those reptiles are not Lenten. Why would dinosaurs be different?

Plenty of reptiles do actually, and so did plenty of dinosaurs. They've even found huge nesting grounds with scores of nests, eggs and incubating parents fossilized Pompeii style.

They evolved into birds and from there into Platypusses.
