DINO-A-DAY #5: Dryptosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

NAME: Dryptosaurus
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
FUN FACT: The Dryptosaurus was made famous by an iconic painting by Charles R. Knight, and the story of its creation, as well as Cope and Marsh's rivalry, is detailed in our and Jim Ottaviani's book Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards.
