Worst. Deinonychus. Ever. by Osmatar Worst. Deinonychus. Ever. by Osmatar
I spent the last few months looking for a dinosaur book for my young nephew, who has finally hit the dinosaur age (joy!). My number one method of testing the quality of the book is to look up Deinonychus (or Velociraptor) to check how accurate or awful it is. And boy are there some stinkers still out there!

Anyhow, after being exposed to a lot of really outdated and generally just bad Deinonychi, I decided to draw one that combined the worst parts of every bad Deinonychus/Velociraptor I've seen in one thoroughly rotten package. I bet there are publishers that would still happily print this in their kids' dinosaur book as a scientifically accurate restoration. :no:

Good lord, this little monster XDDD
Another wonderful[not really] thing to see I'm sure you've witnessed a lot as well is all the typical cheap dinosaur toys. Gotta love those madly-toothed menacing carnivorous stegosauruses with red burning eyes.
I happen to have a Deinonychus toy from my childhood that literally has almost-human legs, always cracks me up xD

How could it regress like this when Bakker got it off to a fairly good start in the 60's?

I once was looking thru some encyclopedia from 2005 and there was drawn a Spinosaurus from about 1915.

Most of them come from popular dinosaur books, yes. Some are more prevalent in sculptures and toys, but clearly based on bad book illustrations.

That reminds me of my school days. Many discussions were had between me and my biology teacher regarding feathers and endothermy in Dinosaurs (and sometimes Pterosaurs got drawn into it as well). And this was in the 90's, when we didn't have any direct evidence of non-avian dinosaur feathers yet. It's a fight we may have to keep fighting until the generations that grew up thinking dinosaurs are stupid lizard-monsters have gone to their graves.

ik, i would try to explain my teacher next time but im kinda shy also i really want there to be a movie as popular as jp but with feathered and accurate dinosaurs as you said  50% less or more of people still hink that dinosaurs are stupid lizards monsters also about biology teachers no offence but most of them call themself ''animal experts'' my ass . most of them if not all still think that dinosaurs were scaly i remember when my 1-4th grade teacher told me about T.rex that it was a scavanger cause it was too slow ._. speed has nothing to to with T.rex , T.rex was a ambush predator and also hunted in family groups also there have been evidence to sugest its a hunter , hopefully in atleast 20 years or 10 100% of people will change the view of dinosaurs from lazy,stupid monsters that just want to kill you and have scales and scream like arnold schwarzenegger into beutifull and inteligent and active feathred animals that just grunted to did sounds like crocs and birds

This would fit in well with other Permian synapsids.

Maybe this should be Jurassic Park's next Velociraptor. Much more scientifically accurate. Note the absence of feathers. The box-like snout. The trademark reptilian look. Deinonychus indeed.

Reminds me of a toy dinosaur I say. It was a deformed stegosaur with I extraordinarily long neck. And it was called a "spinosaurus."
