Buitreraptor facts for kids
Temporal range: Upper Cretaceous, 94 mya
|Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto|
Buitreraptor has a slender, flat, extremely elongated snout. Its jaws have many small teeth which lack meat-tearing serrations or cutting edges. They are grooved, strongly recurved and flattened. This probably meant it ate quite small animals, like lizards and mammals.
Since its close relatives had feathers, it is likely that Buitreraptor also was feathered.
