Dinosaur Diet Revealed!

Dinosaur Diet Revealed!

A correspondent has sent me a link to THIS ARTICLE. It tells of a nodosaur, a type of ankylosaur, which fell into a stream and drowned. Its body was preserved in what is now an oil sands mine in northern Alberta, Canada.

Study of its remains revealed its stomach and that the contents were undigested and could be identified. It had dined on ferns (with spores), twigs, leaves and lots of charcoal. It had not eaten the widely available cycad and conifer leaves. The charcoal suggests that a forest fire had occurred recently.

I presume this is a nodosaur
