Description

The name 'Troodon', Greek for 'wounding tooth', is derived from their venomous serrated teeth. The Troodon would stalk its victims after biting; the toxins in its saliva cause hallucinations, followed by paralysis and finally brain death.

Discovery

The first identified Troodon fossil was a single tooth discovered in the Judith River Formation in 1856. Troodon has proved difficult to classify; first identified as a small lizard, then a pachycephalosaur. Almost 100 years after the first tooth was discovered, Troodon was re-classified as a theropod due to its dentitional similarity to other known carnivores.

Paleoecology

The location of known Troodon fossils suggests it would favor cooler, possibly Arctic areas.
