Saurornitholestes

About Saurornitholestes

Saurornitholestes lived in North America around 75 million years ago. Saurornitholestes competed with much larger dinosaurs, such as the famous T-Rex, for food. Being hundreds of times smaller than a T-Rex, Saurornitholestes' prey were probably small animals like lizards, frogs, early birds, and early mammals. Some believe that Saurornitholestes may have been covered in feathers, as shown here, but this is not conclusive.
