Also known as Talos sampsoni, this dinosaur is a troodontid that lived in North America during the Late Cretaceous Period. Talos lived here roughly 76 million years ago. This dinosaur was discovered in Utah in 2008.
Like other troodontids, Talos was small, graceful, and bird-like. They had thin snouts with a large number of teeth. Talos’ feet had sharp claws, and their arms were wing-like. These dinosaurs were roughly six feet long and weighed over eighty pounds. Based on their teeth and sickle-like claws, Talos was a carnivore and a swift killer. Talos lived in wet, humid climates surrounded by rich, diverse fauna.
