In the late Jurassic era, huge creatures roamed the 600,000 square miles of the Morrison Formation in the western part of North America---huge in size like 100+ feet in length and 20+ tons in weight---except for one creature, the Ornitholestes. This dainty biped was only 6-8 feet in length and less than 100 pounds. It could go places the mammoth dinosaurs could not---like the dense undergrowth of primeval forests. And, it could move very, very fast. So, it fed on small mammals, lizards, and insects found among the ferns deep in the woods---or on 3-foot baby Diplodocuses hatching from eggs deposited under leaves and foliage on the edge of the primeval forests.

Interesting facts about this dinosaur painting:
-Half its length is a whip-like tail which helped it quickly change directions when chasing prey.
-It had short, strong arms with four-fingered hands---or said another way, long-grasping talons.
-It had distinctive decorative scales growing down the back of its head and shoulders.
-When mating or in danger, the Ornitholestes puffed up the long narrow spike-like scales to appear impressive.
-Conical-shaped teeth and blue crest on head
-Opportunistic hunter who did not refuse carrion

Statement from the artist, Ken Arthur:
-Just like with "The Spitter," I liked the idea of hiding this dinosaur among foliage as its effective camouflage while waiting for its prey.
