Caption Shown is an illustrated life reconstruction of Magnuviator ovimonsensis at Montana's Egg Mountain as it may have appeared 75 million years ago. One Magnuviator eats a wasp. On the ground is a tooth from the bird-like dinosaur Troodon. The arid-adapted plant is based on fossil pollen found near Egg Mountain. Artist rendering by Misaki Ouchida.
