Lack of proper kip killed dinosaurs

Forget meteorite strikes and global cooling - the dinosaurs were killed off by a lack of proper kip, according to Niels Rattenborg of the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology. And it wasn't because they were too knackered to run away from extinction-causing threats, either - they didn't survive "because their reptilian sleeping patterns meant their brains did not learn new skills properly".
