Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Asia
Borogovia was a small
meat-eater from Asia
that was very closely
related to Troodon.
Like its North American cousin,
Borogovia would have had a large
brain and been a swift hunter. This
theory is based mostly on what
scientists know about Troodon,
however, as only part of one of its
legs and most of a foot have been
Discovered in 1971, Borogovia was
originally described as a species of
Saurornithoides, but later study
placed it in the
Troodon id family. It
appears to have been a more gracile
form based on how thin one of the
toes appears. There also appears to
be a minor pathology that indicates
that the type specimen was injured.
Like Troodon, Borogovia is
categorized as a bird-like dinosaur
and may have been feathered.
Borogovia was named after
"Borogove", a creature from the
Alice in Wonderland fairytale.
