Another dinosaur species discovered in Alberta, Canada is the Albertonykus. This dinosaur lived 70 million years ago during the Upper Cretaceous Period. Its name is Greek for Alberta Claws. Fossils indicate that this dinosaur walked on two legs and survived on a diet of termites.
Its small arms, and large claws were ideal for digging but not for burrowing. While no Albertonykus skull has been discovered yet, experts estimate that they had slender snouts and a lot of small teeth similar to anteaters and armadillos. They preyed on termites located in wood since mound-building termites hadn’t evolved yet. The Albertonykus was found in Alberta in 2009.
