Bonapartenykus ultimus

35 Favourites
Bonapartenykus ultimus is a newly described alvareszsaurid. Like all of them, it had only one thick arm claw. It was a small and agile theropod. Its so far a nomen nudum because it isnt fully described yet
This is the first picture ever of Bonapartenykus and the first one on DA :D

Me again. I searched everywhere i could but you are right. i believe you are correct. I think you actually have the first artist's concept of this creature.
A congratulations is in order xD

You should find out how to make it an official artist's conception of what it would look like, and get it published in books and web, and perhaps make a bit of $$.
food for thought.

indeed. I like the mixture of fur and feathers.

Those are, in fact, furlike protofeathers covering the animal's body. Fur is a trait exclusive to mammals and mammal-like reptiles. Anyways, I like this drawing as well. Good job!

thank you. I am working in the moment on a new bonapartenykus, this time a coloured head study.
