It means that their larger land-based cousins, such as the mighty T-Rex, are likely to do the same.

Dr Shunxing Jiang, of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, explains: “The bipartum stomach may have developed very early, which adds credence to the hypothesis that it is common to all. all dinosaurs”.

Modern birds all have two stomachs, and some species, such as owls, still swallow their food whole and choke on bones.

Pterosaurs first appeared 250 million years ago before going extinct along with the rest of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
