Agile 'roadrunner' dinosaur fossil discovered in China

Roadrunning, in the late Cretaceous

One the most agile dinosaurs so far discovered has been unearthed in China.

  •         The tiny dinosaur, dubbed a "roadrunner" by the scientists who found it, is also one of the smallest dinosaurs known.
  •          Measuring just half a metre long, the fleet-footed theropod named Xixianykus zhangi was likely to have used a huge claw to dig for termites and ants.
