Deinonychus

About Deinonychus

Deinonychus is a widely debated animal among scientists. Some believe that this ferocious killer was both warm-blooded and possibly very intelligent. Deinonychus' skull suggests that it had a large brain, and was possibly cabable of learned behaviors. Evidence suggests that Deinonychus may have hunted large plant-eating dinosaurs, taking them down by leaping on their backs in packs, similar to how a modern day pack of wolves takes down a large moose. Deinonychus and its descendants appear to have been quick, agile animals, capable of jumping great distances.
