'Dinos you never knew about!' Woo first design for a new series!
The gentle natured Psittacosaurus!
Pretty pumped to get more wacky creatures done in this format and style. This is really just a bit of fun and a way to vent ridiculously specific info I for some reason have stored on dinosaurs... 😁
The Psittacosaurus was a small Mongolian herbivore of the ceratopsian family that lived in the Gobi Desert in small groups in the early cretaceous.There were 11 species. It had a strong beak for snapping plant matter and recent discoveries suggest porcupine like spines along their backs. Often dinosaurs had sexual dismorphism, meaning the males usually were vibrantly coloured to attract a mate, just like today's birds, their closest relative. These creatures were often preyed on by larger carnivores as they had little in the way of defence.
