Patagonykus puertai

A Patagonykus eating termites
The birdlike Patagonykus puertai has just ripped open a termite mould, and is licking up
termites with it's long flexible tongue.
There's no proof for this behaviour, and especially not for the tongue, but based on the question
of it's powerfull claws, the most probable explanation results in this type of behaviour.
