Troodon

About Troodon

Troodon, discovered and named in 1856, was a small, fast hunter. This dinosaur probably ate small animals such as early mammals, frogs, birds and smaller reptiles. While not a very large theropod, it is believed that Troodon was one of the most intelligent dinosaurs to have ever lived. Many scientists believe that Troodon was covered in feathers. This leads them to believe that modern day birds could have descended from dinosaurs.
