File:Deinonychus Steveoc.jpg

Description Deinonychus restoration,
• Based proportionally on Gregory Pauls skeletal and skull drawings in 'Dinosaurs of the Air' by Gregory S. Paul, 2002, The Johns Hopkins University Press.
• Feathers are not yet known for Deinonychus however all maniraptorans with skin impressions show feathers. The specific details of the feathers in this image are speculative but based on other maniraptorans. Most of which show feathers covering the body and remiges on the arms. Velociraptor, a close relative of Deinonychus has quill knobs on its ulna, which show that it has secondaries. Feathers on the legs are known in the dromaeosaur Microraptor, the troodont Anchiornis and the avialan Archaeopteryx .
• The colours and/or patterns, as with nearly all reconstructions of prehistoric creatures, are speculative.

NOTE: I often update my images. If you want to have any of my images on a website, please (if possible) don’t host/save it to the website server. I’d prefer it if the image's Wikimedia URL is used. This means that if I update an image, it will be updated on the site as well. Thanks.
