The names are spelled Deinonychus and Einiosaurus, and the former lived some
35 million years before the latter.  Bambiraptor and a Dromaeosaurus
relative lived alongside Einiosaurus, but were probably too small to
effectively hunt it.  An unnamed primitive neoceratopsian was
contemporaneous with Deinonychus, but is only known from teeth.
