Are y'all only going to do the hell creek formation? Or are y'all going to other famous dig sites?

It looks so dangerous and adorable at the same time. Keep up good work.

They look so badass! I would say I would love to se them, but they would either try to kill me or run away from me, depending on my species.

Considering the discovery of Zhenyuanlong in 2015, will this picture be updated by any chance to have a greater extent of feathers?

What I meant was, will the tail feathers be similar to those of Zhenyuanlong?

I've noticed that the link in the description to his animations is no longer working. Just a heads up.

WAIT. Is saurian rated teen or mature?

It'll likely be teen-mature, due to dinosaurs hunting and killing each other. I'm guessing teen, but if they make it more realistic, it may be rated mature.

in short:
mammals, lizards, amphibians, birds and other small dinosaurs, eggs, insects, occasionally larger prey and cannibalism, and eggs. and of course carrion.

lizards like Chamops, amphibians like Habrosaurus, small mammals, juveniles of various larger dinosaurs, small dinosaurs like birds and alvarezsaurs.
It is also possible it may have taken on slighly larger prey at times, like a sub-adult Leptoceratops gracillis or very young Tyrannosaurus that are alone.
Eggs could have been eaten, if it managed to steal them from nests.
Juvenile Acheroraptors would probably also eat more insects and small mammals/lizards than adults.
Cannibalism occurs in most predators, so expect it to at least sometimes eat other Acheroraptors.

Thanks 
I did not know that they would eat each other.
So in the game they will add small creatures for them.

Well, almost every predator is occasionally a cannibal
