so was it venomous or not?

Most likely not.

While the venom theory has been debunked, that doesn't mean that Sinornithosaurus wasn't poisonous. 


In case you don't know what the difference between venomous and poisonous is, then let me explain:


Venom is delivered by being stung or bitten, while poison is delivered through consumption, smell, or touch.  



Just a personal theory.

I am indeed familiar in the delivery of toxins but it seems rather unlikely that an predator like sinornithosaurus would be poisonous when its rare among vertebre to be poisonous and even rarer among predators

Considering there is a poisonous bird known as the hooded pitohui (among others en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_…), it's possible there were poisonous dinos, particularly among the feathered set.  It would be harder to prove than a venomous one, however.

It looks FANTASTIC!! Man, screw all the people that say feathers aren't ugly.
mortalshinobi's avatar
oh, they're ugly as all ever... they're just generally not scary. this actually looks scary though

*gasp* WHY YOU?!?!

This...is what they all really looked like. It just depends on how you depict them. I mean, have you ever seen cassowary? Doesn't look scary, until you learn that it has literally gutted 15 people in Australia with its talon. Heck, it even has the sickle-toe claw.

well to be fair, tigers and lions don't "look" scary. they look fluffy. you just want to hug tigers and lions. but these things eat bears, hippos, elephants and crocodiles. so looking scary or not, they got power to back up being dangerous and surviving.
as for is it what they all looked like? not necessarily. there's more evidence for it, but not a ton. and a lot still points to dinos the herbivores still having the classic look. (almost like it was birds vs reptiles) with the preds being the birds. though saying they're one or the other is erroneous as scientist have stated quite often that dinos have qualities of birds, reptiles and mammals. they're their own group of animals being neither of the three above categories.

wah? Didn't get what you meant.

That's the most stupid thing I've heard today. Scientists have literally proved it and even classified them and it's become a fact too that BIRDS ARE FREAKING DINOSAURS!! They're literally classified as them! Birds are classified as modern dinosaurs. There is no difference between them. Oh and btw, birds are reptiles, that's a fact too. Birds are a subset of reptiles just like lizards or tortoises are. You have absolutely no idea of what you're talking about there.

Actually that was a mistake by the scientists, the teeth fell out of their sockets
