ORNITHOLESTES HERMANNI
"Adam Hermann's Bird Robber"
Osborn, 1903
Length: 2m (6.6 ft)
Weight: 12.6kg (27.8 lbs.)
Location: Wyoming, USA
Era: Kimmeridgian age, upper Jurassic (154 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Theropoda
Tetanurae
Avetheropoda
Coelurosauria
Maniraptoriformes
Maniraptora

Notes:
Ornitholestes has long been mired by uncertainty and inaccuracies. Long thought to be a species of Coelurus, it wasn't revived as its own genus until the early eighties. It's taxonomic position has long been disputed, but lately it has been suggested that it's actually more advanced than was often suggested.

I really like the basal coelurosaurs like this dinosaur and Santanaraptor, same with the compsognathids.

i don't [i]think[/i] so but it's been a while since i did this, so i might have used an animal as reference and forgot.
