049--HERERRASAURUS ISCHIGUALASTENSIS by Green-Mamba 049--HERERRASAURUS ISCHIGUALASTENSIS by Green-Mamba
project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 049

HERRERASAURUS ISCHIGUALASTENSIS
"Ischigualasto Formation Victorino Herrera's Lizard"
Reig, 1963
Length: 5m (16.4ft)
Weight: 250kg (551lbs.)
Location: San Juan, Argentina
Era: Ladinian age, middle Triassic (231 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Theropoda
Herrerasauridae

Notes:
Typically described in less technical literature as the possible progenitor of the Theropod lineage (or at least very close), Herrerasaurus and its relatives have an unusual collection of derived features (most notably its unusual hands and pelvis) that indicate it was likely part of an early dinosaur radiation that ultimately died off quite early on.

Synonyms:
Ischisaurus cattoi Reig, 1963
Frenguellisaurus ischigualastensis Novas, 1986

Love the colors, and the face looks well done. Though I don't really think earlier dinosaurs had protofeathers, I think they look good on him. :dummy:
