Name: Deltadromeus agilis
Species: Dinosaur
Age: Cretaceous Period
Location Found: Morocco

Deltadromeus, meaning Delta Runner, was a dinosaur that lived about 95 million years ago and was believed to be an early offshoot of the Theropod line that led to developing Raptors in North America. They had unusually long, slender limbs suggesting it was built for speed & agility, making it one of the fastest dinosaurs to have ever existed. They measured around 26 feet long and weighed up to 4 tons, the adults may have approached the size of Tyrannosaurus!

Deltadromeus was a meat-eating dinosaur, and because of its size and speed, it would have been a formidable predator. Its teeth were thin with prominent serrations, used for stripping the flesh of its prey, rather than crushing the bone. If a tooth fell out, another would grow in its place.

(GRADE A): Complete tooth.
