Pterosaurs as Part of a Spinosaur Diet


Pterosaurs as Part of a Spinosaur Diet

Eric Buffetaut et al. Nature.


A remarkable specimen has been discovered of an Early Cretaceous pterosaur that has a tooth embedded in one of its cervical vertebrae: the tooth has been identified as one from a spinosaurid theropod dinosaur. This fossil is direct evidence that spinosaurs included items other than fish in their diet.
