Dromaeosaurus

About Dromaeosaurus

Dromaeosaurus lived on the Earth around 75 million years ago. It had long, powerful hind legs, which were designed for running quickly, and leaping from place to place. Its front legs where shorter and equipped with three digits for grabbing and tearing prey. The hind feet contained two normal digits and one large sickle-like claw. It is possible that Dromaeosaurus was covered in feathers, but since little is known about this animal, it is difficult to say for certain. Dromaeosaurus had a large head, with evenly spaced sharp teeth.
