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. We don't really know its exact place in the dromaeosaur family tree either. First Dave was classified as a Sinornithosaurus, but the last I heard it has turned out to be closer to Microraptor.

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.

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. ;)
