    This one is even funnier imagining Susie’s reaction: her glaring eyes and mouth hanging wide open in shock and outrage:D

    That is how it ought to be.

    Calvin’s Mom: Calvin, what did Deinonychus eat?

    Calvin: Mom, its main prey was the plant-eating ornithopod dinosaur Tenontosaurus.

    Calvin’s Mom: When and where did these dinosaurs live?

    Calvin: In western North America during the early Cretaceous, about 45 million years before T. rex.

    Calvin’s Mom: How big were they?

    Calvin: Deinonychus (“terrible claw”) weighed about 50 pounds, and was about 3½ feet tall and 10 feet long including its 6-foot tail, which was stiffened by bony tendons for balance as this theropod ran. The longest claw on each of its feet measured about 7 inches along the outer curve when the dinosaur was alive (the bony core alone was about 5⅓ inches long, but it would have been longer with the keratinous sheathe). Deinonychus had about 64 backward-facing teeth, up to half an inch long. Tenontosaurus (“tendon lizard”) was 2¾ feet high at its hips, and 12¾ feet long including its 7¾-foot tail. Its tail, like Deinonychus’s, was stiffened by bony tendons for balance. Tenontosaurus weighed approximately 270 pounds. Fossil evidence indicates that Deinonychus hunted in packs to bring down Tenontosaurus.*
