A depiction of Yutyrannus made after its discover, with a woodpecker-like colour scheme. Yes, I like black and white dinosaurs. Yes, I like them a lot.
Yutyrannus (meaning “feathered tyrant”) is a genus of tyrannosauroid dinosaurs which contains a single species, Yutyrannus huali. This species lived during the early Cretaceous period in what is now northeastern China. Three fossils of Y. huali - all found in the rock beds of Liaoning Province - are currently the largest known dinosaur specimens that preserve direct evidence of feathers.

This a big digital re-wroking of an old oil painting from the early naughties. Two Troodon_s watch some _Parasaurolophus_es walk by while they tuck into a tasty _Thescelosaurus.
