Juravenator

Juravenator is a coelurosaurian theropod from late Jurassic Germany. It was 75 centimeters long.

Impressions of patches of scaly skin are preserved and protofeather impressions, suggesting that the presence of scales on the tail of Juravenator means that the feather coat of early feathered dinosaurs was more variable than seen in modern birds.

Discovery[]

In the summer of 1998, the Jura-Museum Eichstätt at Eichstätt organised a paleontological expedition to the nearby chalk quarry of Schamhaupten.

Description[]

Juravenator was a small bipedal predator. The holotype of Juravenator represents a juvenile individual, about seventy-five centimetres in length.
