It's Dave by Osmatar It's Dave by Osmatar
Dave, the also known by the less memorable moniker "specimen NGMC 91" was a juvenile dromaeosaur that became famous for his feathers. Or her feathers. I don't think we can tell. For a good while we didn't really know its exact place in the dromaeosaur family tree either, but now it seems we can at least agree that it was a subadult Sinornithosaurus.

I illustrated Dave with a protobeak, even though there seems to be no indication that such things existed in deinonychosauria. I think the feather covering should go further down the snout too.

Actually I believe Dave was found to be a juvenile Sinornithosaurus in 2011.

I don't care what species he is (or sex for that matter) I am a definite fan of Dave. He's awesome.

Thanks. I sometimes wonder if there's a way to figure out what its sex really was. It would be amusing if Dave ended up being a dame. ;)
