Imperobator sketch



The "Naze" Dromaeosaurid was recently found in Antarctica. Its remains are very fragmentary but we at least know
it was rather weird for a dromaeosaurid (it didn't possess a sickle claw on the second toe). Therefore, this reconstruction
is very speculative.

I decided to reconstruct "Naze" as a combination of eudromaeosauridae and unenlagiinae, hence the long and low skull.

Also, sitting position. Because it has become my trademark, I guess. ^^

EDIT (28.04.19): The Naze raptor received this year a proper description and a name, Imperobator antarcticus. Experts do not
agree on what it might have been, some think it was a dromaeosaurid, others place it closer to Halszkaraptorids and some do not even think it can be identified as a paravian with any certainty. Whatever it was, it has a decent size, close to Utahraptor.
