Science - Modern carnivore communities include species that span a range of body sizes. For example, on the African savannah, there are small species (mongooses), medium...

  • Unlike modern carnivore communities, carnivorous dino groups mostly lacked species that were middle-sized as adults. A new study finds this absence appears to have been driven by distinctive dino biology, in which giant adults start out as tiny hatchlings. https://t.co/DXz3Xih03b https://t.co/DXz3Xih03b
