Jurassic Park Novel: Othnielia (new art !) by HellraptorStudios Jurassic Park Novel: Othnielia (new art !) by HellraptorStudios
Othnielia means After Othniel Marsh
Length: 1,5-2 m
Height: 1 m
Weight: 10 kilograms
Diet: Herbivore, scavenger
Period: Late Jurassic 150-140 mya
Area: USA

Othnielia was small,bipedal herbivore that is half-arboreal and lives in the Hypsilophodon Highlands along with Dryosaurus. They are quick and agile, spending much time in the trees, jumping like monkeys. This makes them hard to track for the motion sensors and therefore the movement cannot be determined all the time. Othnielias are also sad to be scavengers as they had been feeding on a Hadrosaurus, killed by the adult T.Rex. 23 of these dinosaurs were found in Jurassic Park and all of them got killed when Jurassic Park was destroyed in the napalm bombing. They were expcted to be only 16 but it was later revealed that they could breed.

On Isla Sorna, they live in the trees and are well protected in that way from hungry predators.

Looks great. I´ve read the novel recently, and it really suprised me when the othniellias were described scavenging on a dead dryo.

I love this revamp of the novel series! It's great!

Also, are you going to make a novel version of Camarasaurus and Callovosaurus ? They were only in some versions of the novel and replaced Apatosaurus and Microceratops in those versions only.

Based off Kulindadromeus it probably had a scaly tail.

If you don't mind my asking, how did the book describe Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus?

Achillobator (velociraptor) looked somewhat like in the movie but with a yellowish brown colour with red stripes. They have forked tounges aswell.


T.Rex is red colouerd with a forked tounge.

That must be a rather pitiful tracking system if a tree can block it.

Dinosaur cloning may be expensive, but there are some corners you just shouldn't cut.

i'm guessing that when you do the T-rex for the novel version, you could make it scaly and crocodilian like.

Also, can you do a Jurassic Park novel version of Spinosaurus walking bipedal with Scott Hartman's take on the legs?

I don't like seeing Spinosaurus as a quadraped. It just don't like it at all.

Much better than the novel! But I have a question, hypsilophodontids have fur/feather like structures?
Reply
:iconhellraptorstudios:
HellraptorStudios Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you :) its still up to debate but since some smaller ornithopods had feathers ( tiyonlong, Kulindadromeus) it would not be impossible. What I know there are no evidence for that Hypsilophodntids had feathers but its not impossible either.

I believe in the novel, it was called Othnelia.  Still, this is fantastic and really accurate. Great job.

They have changed the name on it lately ;)

Really.  It was named after Othneil Charles Marsh and he's been dead since the 1800's.  How can you change the name?

There is at least one non-Drinker, non-dryosaurid little ornithischians in the Morrisson

The holotype of Othnielia was based on "Nanosaurus" rex, which is just a femur.  Upon further consideration, the O rex femur was not differentiable from other little Morrison ornithischians like Drinker, so O rex was regarded as a nomen dubium.  Another skeleton of the not-Drinker Morrison ornithischian was chosen as the holotype of a new genus, Othnielosaurus, this one was already described as a species of "Laosaurus", "L" consors, so the new combination is Othnielosaurus consors.

So, the Morrison has the following little ornithischians:
Dryosaurus altus (not that little actually)
Othnielosaurus consors
Drinker nisti (whatever that is....)
Nanosaurus agilis (unfortunately the holotype was based on natural casts that have fallen apart, but it seems like it was actually something unique based on descriptions and photos that exist)
