Scipionyx ate fish too

With the name Ichthyovenator given to a theropod presumed to have
eaten fish most of the time, it might be good to mention this news
article in Italian from last week. It discusses how the study of the
digestive tract of little Scipionyx provides evidence that the baby
theropod ate at least two or three fish before it died. The presence
of fish and a lizard in its guts I think was mentioned in the
literature before, but, based on the quoted interviews, maybe more
research has been done .
