Troodon
Facts

Troodons had the best vision of any dinosaur. This means it could spot its prey easily. It also had a big brain for its size and may have been one of the smartest dinosaurs too!

Once a Troodon spotted prey, it would be pretty hard for that dinosaur to get away! Troodons were fast, and their sickel-shaped claws could strike killing blows. Not only that, but they had teeth that had edges like saws to rip through flesh.

Troodon probably had to lift his sickel-shaped toe claws up when running to keep them sharp.

 


 

The Troodon never met a fleshy meal it didn't like!
