Is a snake a dinosaur
The 67 million year old prehistoric snake ate baby dinosaurs
The snake pounced on the newly hatched offspring of a 100-ton dinosaur and was surprised by a mudslide. The dinosaur babies were about half a meter tall.
A 3.5 meter long primal snake specialized in newly hatched dinosaurs. 67 million years after they attacked a clutch of dinosaurs, researchers have now reconstructed what they did. The find from India was published in the online journal "PLoS Biology" on Tuesday.
"We believe that a cub had just hatched from the egg and its movements attracted the snake," said Dhananjay Mohabey from the Geological Survey in India. The snake with the name Sanajeh indicus was just throwing itself over a clutch of a titanosaur when a storm buried them all. These dinosaurs were herbivores, had four fat legs and could weigh up to 100 tons.
Robbers and prey were buried
The snake has not yet developed a large, fold-out jaw like today's pythons or boas, write the researchers working with Jason Head from the University of Toronto. So she couldn't crack the solid dinosaur eggs. But half a meter baby dinosaurs were arguably just the right size for that big snake, Head said.
The spillage of predator and prey came quickly, Head explained. The animals were probably suddenly buried under muddy sand and mud during a storm. "The find is the first direct evidence of the feeding behavior of a fossil primitive snake."
