A dinosaur’s last meal: A 110 million-year-old dinosaur’s stomach contents are revealed
They know what this dinosaur ate last We now know what one dinosaur had a palate for. About 110 million years ago, an armored plated dinosaur became mummified in mud. The remains were found nine years ago during mining operations in Alberta, Canada. So well preserved, that archaeologists have recovered stomach contents.
So, what did the nodosaur enjoy for a last meal? Leaves and plants, of course, according to details published Tuesday in the journal Royal Society Open Science. But the exciting part is that the cells were so well preserved that scientists may have a better understanding of what flora was like at that point in history. What might future inhabitants millions of years from now discover about our diets? What will our food sources look like in another million years?
