DINO-A-DAY #44: Saurornithoides

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Saurornithoides
PRONUNCIATION: SAWR-or-nih-THOY-deez
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Mongolia, 1924
FUN FACT: Saurornithoides had stereoscopic vision and thus good depth perception -- a necessary trait when chasing after small rodents in the desert.
