DINO-A-DAY #60: Caudipteryx

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: Caudipteryx
PRONUNCIATION: kaw-DIP-ter-iks
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Liaoning Province, China, 1997
FUN FACT: Caudipteryx was the size of a peacock, but probably slightly more dangerous.
