Rare Evidence Of Dinosaur Cannibalism: Meat-Eater Tooth Found In Gorgosaurus
ScienceDaily (Oct. 7, 2009) â University of Alberta researcher Phil Bell has
found 70 million year old evidence of dinosaur cannibalism. The jawbone of what
appears to be a Gorgosaurus was found in 1996 in southern Alberta. A technician
at the Royal Tyrell Museum found something unusual embedded in the jaw. It was
the tip of a tooth from another meat-eating dinosaur.
Bell, a paleontology PhD candidate, says discovery of the tooth shows that a
fight between two dinosaurs definitely took place. "The wound showed no signs
of healing so we know the dinosaur died soon after it was inflicted." Bell says
that leaves two possible storylines. "Either the attacker fought, killed and
ate this dinosaur, or the victim was already dead." Either way, if the attacker
and the victim were the same species, Bell has a rare case of dinosaur
