Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?

From SciShow.

Belly buttons are, typically, a human’s first scar. A sign that you used to feed through an umbilical cord that connected your tummy to a placenta. But it turns out you don’t have to feed from a placenta to get a similar scar. It might just be a little hard to find.
