Ornitholestes (meaning "bird robber") is a small theropod dinosaur that lives in the Blackwood Flats.


Description[]

Ornitholestes is roughly 2 meters (6.5 ft) in length.[4] The head of Ornitholestes is relatively small.[5] Nonetheless, the skull is more robust than that of many other small theropods, such as Compsognathus and Coelophysis, and this enables Ornitholestes to deliver a powerful bite.[6]

Classification[]

Ornitholestes is a coelurosaur, similar in many ways to Compsognathus, though somewhat larger.

Diet[]

Ornitholestes is a pack-hunting carnivore.
