The animals name starts with fruit...haha
Doesn't mean it ate fruits...
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.
Actually, they did but I haven't been able to watch the show...
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...
what a silly looking animal!
All dinosaurs are kind of silly looking, aren't they?
I was wondering if there was a pic and I found it! It's so cute!
Looks like all small ornithischians will now be inferred to have feathers...
I see such dinosaur for the first time
Nicely done dude
That's an awesome looking spine. Was it bristly?
I actually read about this dinosaur and told all of my friends about it... exciting that it just popped up on new deviations, hehe you're very fast!
I was waiting to see your version! This guy had protofeathers?
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
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?
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.
Very good! Interesting looking dinosaur. I've never heard of it before.
