Halszkaraptor

Halszkaraptor

Halszkaraptor escuilliei (a very difficult time to spell or pronounce, I know) may have resembled a waterfowl, but it was actually a dromaeosaurid dinosaur (or “raptor”) that lived in Asia between 75 and 71 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous. Its skeletal anatomy suggests that it would have hunted aquatic prey and therefore may have lived a semi-aquatic lifestyle similar to water birds today. In retrospect, I should have added webbing to the dinosaur’s feet, but I guess the giant water lilies here give it a comfortable perch from which to catch little fish.
