Small dinosaur 'hunted like cat'

2 posts in this topic

Some predatory dinosaurs used guile and agility to outwit their feathered prey according to research.

Researchers studied the fossil remains of two Sinocalliopteryx dinosaurs and found they had been feasting on primitive birds and flying dinosaurs.

The prey could have been scavenged, but they argue that the presence of several birds in the stomach of one fossil implied the prey was actively hunted.

The researchers suggested that to catch their prey, the dinosaurs used ambush hunting techniques similar to modern cats.

I still have nightmares about small, fast dinosaurs with razor sharp teeth chasing me.
