Description

project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 042

SINOVENATOR CHANGII
"Meemann Chang's Hunter from China"
Xu et al., 2002
Length: 91cm (3ft)
Weight: 4.5kg (10 lbs)
Location: Liaoning, China
Era: Aptian age, lower Cretaceous (125 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Theropoda
Tetanurae
Avetheropoda
Coelurosauria
Maniraptoriformes
Maniraptora
Aviremigia
Paraves
Deinonychosauria
Troodontidae

Notes:
Primitive compared to its Troodontid relatives, Sinovenator shares many characteristics with Dromaeosaurids and primitive birds, helping to solidify their common descent in Paraves.

UPDATE APR 09 2013:
Despite being one of the most popular dinosaurs I did for the project, I was never satisfied with it, particularly the wings and feet, which I have now redrawn to be up to standard. Go here ([link]) for the original.
