'Evil' Dino Linked To First Carnivores
A new dinosaur recently unearthed in New Mexico represents an evolutionary link between the world's oldest known carnivorous dinosaurs and later meat-loving dino species from the Jurassic, according to new research.
The dinosaur, named Daemonosaurus chauliodus (evil spirit buck-toothed reptile), had specialized teeth which reveal that it was a more advanced dinosaur than its earlier relatives. As time went on, carnivorous dinosaurs, like the famous Tyrannosaurus rex, evolved longer snouts with even more teeth, complex openings in the snout, and limbs that were more bird-like.The Presurfer
