Why do palaeontologists disagree about dinosaurs?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Why do palaeontologists disagree about dinosaurs?       
Why do palaeontologists disagree about dinosaurs? Scientists have found very few examples of some of the more interesting and puzzling types of dinosaur.
It is very rare to find a complete skeleton, and even rarer to find other clues, such as the animal's last meal or traces of its fur or feathers.

As a result, palaeontologists often guess at the appearance of an extinct animal, based on a few clues and on similar living animals.

This method leads to strong disagreements. For example, some experts say that dinosaurs must have been warm blooded, in order to move quickly and to live in such varied habitats. Others insist that they were cold-blooded animals, like modern reptiles.
