Deinonychus antirrhopus (© crownedrose)
➛ Lived during the Cretaceous Period.
➛ A member of the Dromaeosauridae family.
➛ Most likely covered in feathers, but we have no skin/feather evidence currently for Deinonychus.
➛ The top of its head reached a little over halfway up an average human’s body, and generally reached lengths of 11 feet.
➛ As shown, it features a sickle claw on each hind foot.
➛ Deinonychus is a very important dinosaur because of John Ostrom’s work with the theropod, leading to the Dinosaur Renaissance.
➛ These photos were taken by me at The Field Museum in Chicago.
