see and hear well. Tyrannosaurus (tie-RAN-uh-SOR-us) Human babies are born without any teeth. Not dinosaur babies! They had lots of teeth. Apatosaurus (uh-PAT-uh-SOR-us) What did baby dinosaurs eat? Some kinds ate leaves and berries and seeds. Deinonychus (die-NON-ih-kus) Some kinds ate little animals and bugs. Ornithomimus (or-NIH-thuh-MY-mus) Was it safe for baby dinosaurs to hunt for food alone? No! Tyrannosaurus (tie-RAN-uh-SOR-us) Enemies were all around. And baby dinosaurs

could not fight or run fast. They could only hide. Triceratops (try-SEHR-uh-tops) Some baby dinosaurs were lucky. They were never alone. They lived in herds. Even then enemies tried to grab the babies and eat them! Maybe the big dinosaurs made a circle and kept the little ones inside. Babies were safe in the dinosaur herd. The dinosaurs walked and ate and slept together. Styracosaurus (sty-RAK-uh-SOR-us) Baby dinosaurs kept growing and changing. Some kinds grew sharp horns.
