Snakes Ate Dinosaurs

New fossils found in India prove that ancient snakes dined on dinosaurs.

The discovered fossils show that an 11-foot snake slithered up to an unguarded dinosaur nest. The snake than saw a newborn dinosaur hatching from its egg. The snake curled around the hatchling, prepared to attack, but “heavy rains sent mud surging out of a nearby channel—smothering both snake and prey.” The snake and dinosaur were fossilized by the mud until the recent discovery.
