Quilled Oryctodromeus by StygimolochSpinifer Quilled Oryctodromeus by StygimolochSpinifer
Another submission for the All Your Yesterdays contest: An Oryctodromeus using its quilled tail as a passive defense against possible predators while it digs its burrow.

Here we have it discouraging a passing troodontid from trying anything funny.

:) (Smile) Cool. Magnify An ornithopod with porcupine-like characteristics on it's tail for defense (and let alone, rictal bristles on it's face like a flycatcher. Good job there.

That was the very nice drawing and are these troodonts in the early or late cretaceous?

Oryctodromaeus is from a Cenomanian formation, so I'd say middle Cretaceous. :)
