T-Rex had tiny arms, so the only way they were able to catch prey was with their teeth. Dinosaurs also live on in the study of paleontology, and new information about them is constantly being uncovered. Correspondingly, trophic energy represented by large herbivore species should have been available to a predator guild to a much higher degree in the sauropod ecosystem as compared to large mammal-dominated ecosystems with reproductive output of large herbivores confined to a few well-protected young ( Hummel & Clauss, 2008 ).

So, on the one hand, it's really frustrating trying to tease apart the threads of this evolutionary knot, but it's really a very exciting thing to be working on and taking apart this evolutionary origin.' When Professor Xu saw this skeleton of Xiaotingia zhengi in a museum, he knew right away it was special. Other plant taxa, for example, ferns, cycads, and bennettitites, were probably patchier or sparser in their distribution and thus less dependable as a food source ( Gee, in press ).

China is renowned for its dragon stories, and dragons are prominent on Chinese pottery, embroidery, and carvings. Seventeen bone plates resembling giant 2.5 foot tall triangular teeth in two rows extending along Stegosaurus's back would have made it appear more formidable, may have been protective armor, and may have also absorbed and dissipated heat. First, the life of the fruit on a tree is different than the life of the tree itself.
