This exact image was featured in QI recently. Unfortunately they erroneously described it as the smallest dinosaur rather than the smallest ornithischian!

This is a British TV show, right? Was it good?

Well no one on the panel knew what it was (unsurprisingly) so they were told it was a Fruitadens. Unfortunatly the show is not about dinosaurs so they then moved on to a completely different topic, but this picture did have 5 minutes of glory. However I am surprised they didn't ask you for permission to use the picture.

Thank you for the link. This is actually quite entertaining and I like Stephen Fry very much as an actor, TV presenter and all the hundreds things he is doing... Pity that they got a few things wrong, like birds being the closest relatives of the ornithischians...

Looks like all small ornithischians will now be inferred to have feathers...

I was waiting to see your version! This guy had protofeathers?
Reply
:iconntamura:
NTamura Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009
Its close relative Tianyulong had been found with protofeather impressions, so it is not unlikely that Fruitadens had them too...

Speaking of protofeathers, I think you need to update your Heterodontosaurus drawing
Reply
:iconntamura:
NTamura Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009
Yeah, right... but not update, just have to make a new one ;)

And how about ceratopsians and pachycephalosaurians(I believe them to be descended from heterodontosaurs, right?) I know Psittacosaurus was found with those tail-frills, but what about the rest?
Reply
:iconntamura:
NTamura Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
Well, skin impressions are known for Triceratops and so far it look all scaly.

Its generally thought of that heterodontosaurs were at the base of Ornithischia nowdays. However, marginocephalians still need some "fuzzying", as do other ornithischians. Ceratopsians in particular are known to have had quills; there's rumours that a Triceratops recently found "mummy" had quills

It was related with the protofeathered Tianyulong.
