Tooth-marked dinosaur bones provide insight into feeding behaviours and biting strategies of theropod dinosaurs. The majority of theropod tooth marks reported to date have been found on herbivorous dinosaur bones, although some tyrannosaurid bones with tooth marks have also been reported. In 1988 a partial skeleton of the dromaeosaurid Saurornitholestes was collected from southern Alberta, Canada, that bore marks on one dentary. The location and morphology of the tooth marks suggests that a theropod (possible a juvenile tyrannosaurid) included a Saurornitholestes in its diet.
