Sinovenator changii by vasix Sinovenator changii by vasix
Now I'm back to work to be honest, and this is also a tiny little change on an old, old concept work on this genus. Sinovenator is a tiny genus of troodont, from the Yixian Formation (albeit I forget what bed in time it was found in) and has been feathered up like hell.

The old concept lacked any crests, dear lord! And this is a father, taking his turn to keep the eggs warm while the female's out hunting. Sinovenator itself id the size of a chicken, so it can fit inside a large rotting log.

Nice feather detail in the wing. I also like that you've represented the male being the one doing the egg-sitting, since that is probably the most accurate for troodontids.

:) ah, why thanks a lot! Most accurate for troodonts? Why, were there like....size-related or other sexual dimorphism among troodonts and if so, among raptors in general? Just curious :iconraptorplz:.......

That's right. Apparently, for non-avian theropod fossils that have been found sitting on nests, bone microstructure reveals that these are the males. So for deinonychosaurs, it seems pretty likely that at least for some species, the male did the sitting. :)
