TROODON

Pronounced

‘TRO-uh-don’

 

Meaning

‘wounding tooth’

 

Habitat

It remains unclear how many species of Troodon existed. Fossils have mainly been found in Canada, New Mexico, and Western America, which would have been generally warm at the time, with some fossilised teeth found in areas that would have experienced colder climates too. More research needs to be undertaken in this respect.

Diet

 Carnivore. It probably used its long fingers to snare small mammals and reptiles.

TIME PERIOD

Late Cretaceous Period (circa 77 million years ago)

 

Character

Based upon its brain-to-body-weight ratio, Troödon may have been the most intelligent dinosaur. Aside from its large brain, it had large eyes, suggesting a nocturnal lifestyle. The position of the eyes suggests that Troödon may have had stereoscopic vision – the ability to perceive depth. Its lightweight body structure and rod-like tail indicate that it was built for speed. Typically, it grew to be 1 metre tall and some 2 metres long.
