The root of Herrera is "hierro", which is iron in Spanish. "Fierro" is another Spanish word for iron; from it comes the name Ferrera, which also means "iron worker", or "blacksmith".
herrerasaurus = blacksmithlizard
However, I know that when it comes to this dinosaur, it's meant as a way to honor some scientist whose last name is Herrera.
Two questions about it:
- Is there some evidence of dinofuzz on such basal saurischians? I've seen several restorations with dionofuzz.
- The environment: Dry? Ancient forest? Dry season + rain season? So I wouldn't make too many mistakes.
I remember the Chinle Fm. from Doug Henderson's artwork, he painted some very nice scenes indeed, with Coelophysis packs and such.
Thanks I might drop by more oftern if i have questions about dinosaurs, i know alot about them but i wanna make my future, upcoming dinosaur pics more accurate. I also think about do them in this simple style like my updated jp pics, but with some more dark shading
Could it work
