China Jaw by ScottHartman China Jaw by ScottHartman
This is an update to my Huaxiagnathus skeletal, which I realized had not been posted to DA yet. So here it is, the first "large" (for a compsognathid!) theropod with proto-feathers.

Is there actually a specimen of this with feathers? It almost certainly had them, but the holotype doesn't preserve any as far as I'm aware.

I've seen specimens that have dino fuzz that I'm pretty sure are Huaxiagnathus, but you are correct that the type doesn't have them.

Oh good. I'd heard rumors of such, so it's nice to have better confirmation.

Not bad.;) maybe I shouldn't use it next time while I'm working on.

His skull is somewhat tyrannosauroid-ish...

Given that both tyrannosaurs and compsognathids are fairly basal coelurosaurs, that probably isn't terribly surprising.
