    Scientists have uncovered the last meal of a 75-million-year-old tyrannosaur – two baby dinosaurs. This discovery sheds new light on the behavior and diet of tyrannosaurs, showing evidence that they changed their diet as they grew up. The fossil was found in the Alberta Badlands in 2009, but it took years to prepare and discover the prey inside.

    Changing Diet as They Grew

    Researchers say the preservation of the animal and the small creatures it ate provides solid evidence that tyrannosaurs drastically changed their diet as they grew up. The discovery challenges previous assumptions about the diet and behavior of these predators.

    Uncovering the Last Meal

    The fossil was originally discovered in the Alberta Badlands in 2009, but it took years to prepare and discover the prey inside. The small toe-bones of the baby dinosaurs were eventually noticed sticking out from the ribcage, revealing the complete hind legs of two baby dinosaurs inside the tyrannosaur.
