Day 234: Panini!

When dinosaurs roamed the earth, some of the largest were also the gentlest.

They ate vegetables. They were shy and docile.

They made for very good eating.

This is why, when you are petite with feathers, you never worry about the size of the predator relative to the size of the prey.

You know that the larger the prey, the easier it is likely to be to bring down.

Take the “panini” for instance.

A known herbivore, gentle and succulent, it will barely even put up a fight.

The petite but fierce predator is about to bring down the gentle, docile "panini."

One fierce stare is all it takes to quell the panini's protests.

Systematic consumption makes quick work of the former gentle giant.

Satiated, the predator takes a moment to digest before disappearing from sight.

Millions of years from now, archeologists will wonder what mighty predator brought down such weighty prey?!
