Paleontologists from Southern Methodist University in Dallas recently published findings of a baby dinosaur jawbone they discovered in 2007 in the Arctic of Alaska. The jawbone, measuring 14 millimeters, is most likely from a young dromaeosaur the size of a small puppy.

This discovery provides evidence to the concept that some carnivorous dinosaurs were able to live year-round in Arctic Alaska, at least during the Cretaceous Period. It also leads to further discussion on how far these polar dinosaurs may have migrated, as dromaeosaurs only grew up to eight feet in length.
