Troodon eating habits



        Just because Troodon had a sickle-like claw doesn't mean it could take 
on anything that happened by. This was a very small animal, and it therefore 
had relatively small claws. Also, it isn't a given that they used their claws
like Deinonychs and Velociraptors, i.e. to disembowel large prey animals
(theoretically). What better way to catch a rodent than to spear it with a
quick kick?
