    "A bird-like dinosaur that prowled an ancient forest 125 million years ago used venom to subdue its prey, according to a new theory.

    Sinornithosaurus's upper teeth resemble those of "rear-fanged" snakes which bite their prey and channel venom into the wound.

    The dinosaur probably fed on the abundant birds which inhabited what is now north-east China.

    The work appears in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal. "

    Few enough were innocent in the past, few enough are innocent in the present, we just don’t know why yet.
