Local time May 7 news, a few days ago, paleontologists discovered that a kind of small theropods have extraordinary hearing and night vision abilities.
Shuvuuia is a small dinosaur that lives in the desert. This species has a very large ear pinna, which is almost the same as a modern barn owl in relative size.
This discovery suggests that Shuvuuia can hunt in complete darkness, like barn owls.
This creature, which no longer appears in the world for a long time, also has a pair of eye-catching eyes, which are said to be the largest pupils measured in birds or dinosaurs, indicating that they can see very clearly at night.
Shuvuuia is about the size of a chicken and lives in the desert of what is now Mongolia.
The picture shows an artistically restored image of Shuvuuia.
