A remarkable specimen has been discovered of an Early
Cretaceous pterosaur that has a tooth embedded in one of
its cervical vertebrae: the tooth has been identified as
one from a spinosaurid theropod dinosaur. This fossil is
direct evidence that spinosaurs included items other than
fish in their diet.
