085--TENONTOSAURUS TILLETTI by Green-Mamba 085--TENONTOSAURUS TILLETTI by Green-Mamba
project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 085

TENONTOSAURUS TILLETTI
"The Family of Lloyd Tillett's Tendon Lizard"
Ostrom, 1970
Length: 8m (26ft)
Weight: 2 tonnes (2.2 tons)
Location: Montana, USA
Era: Albian age, lower Cretaceous (108 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Ornithischia
Cerapoda
Ornithopoda
Iguanodontia

Notes:
Tenontosaurus is known from around fifty fossil sites, and of these, approximately twenty percent contain the remains of the predator Deinonychus, showing that, at the very least, the small dromaeosaurid fed on Tenontosaurus. Whether Deinonychus hunted and killed the much larger ornithopod by using pack coordination like is so often depicted is an other matter.

Looking at Deinonychus' heavy build my personal theory is that it specialized in hunting young tenontosaurus :) love the colours!

Only Young Tenontosaurus can be killed by loose packs of Deinonychus.

This is innacurate--everyone knows any self-respecting Tenontosaurus wouldn't even consider going out in public without at least three Deinonychus.

That's actually something that's debunked in "All Yesterdays".

Impossible. Said image has been proven to have been taken on a soundstage in Nevada using sock puppets and duct tape.
